I can’t even imagine what the plus of this system is supposed to be.
The current 20 jobs a month (or whatever) system already means that people have to flood employers with applications for jobs they are not remotely interested in taking.
As much workload as that must create for employers, at least hopefully honestly/lack of effort/slackness filters out people who are uninterested at an early stage.
With this system they can’t make it that obvious - you might actually have hired and onboarded them before you figure out they can’t be arsed. How is that a win for reputable employers??? If someone doesn’t want to work, this system is not going to make them pull their socks up.
Unscrupulous employers on the other hand, now have a BIG stick to wave at vulnerable applicants who can’t afford to lose their Centrelink benefits. What’s to stop them telling people that unless they accept unconscionable conditions they will be reported to Centrelink and lose their benefits? We already know how awfully people on Centrelink benefits are treated and how little trust they are given.
This just really seems like the worst idea on the planet. I can’t see who it supposed to be a win for, everybody loses.
