Richard Marles and Mitchell Dye

Richard Marles and Mitchell DyeRichard Marles, Federal Member for Corio and Shadow Minister for Immigration and Border Protection joined Mitchell’s Front Page in the studio to talk about a range of local issues, including yesterday’s federal government jobactive announcement in Geelong.

“Yesterday’s announcement was effectively a re-badging,” he said.

“There were some mechanical changes to the job network program…not specific to Geelong…what the government was trying to do was say that they are concerned about jobs in Geelong, really, at the end of the day, the re-badging of a program is going to be of little comfort to Alcoa workers and their families.”
