AREEA Submission to Productivity Commission Issues Paper – Geographic labour mobility

AREEA has submitted to the Productivity Commission’s Issues Paper on Geographical Labour Mobility, saying that effective steps to encourage domestic labour mobility requires ‘big thinking’ and coordinated interventions by Australia’s policy makers and that Australian workers would be the ultimate beneficiaries.

AREEA highlights at the outset that it is vital for policy makers to take a realistic and pragmatic look at the complex challenges associated with domestic labour mobility, particularly as it pertains to Australia’s resource industry.

Understanding the real-world challenges associated with labour mobility will ensure sensible and practical policy making that takes into account the necessity and benefits of supplementary labour sources (such as commuters from other states and overseas workers) while at the same time seeking to ensure the local population is as highly and relevantly-skilled as possible.
