Having access to local jobs is critical. And jobs that are secure and well paid are of critical importance to allow workers and their families to prosper.
The Victorian Government’s policy supports Victorian businesses and workers by ensuring that small and medium size enterprises are given a full and fair opportunity to compete for both large and small government contracts, helping to create job opportunities, including for apprentices, trainees and cadets.
From schools and hospitals, to manufacturing and road projects, we want to ensure that local projects create opportunities for Victorian businesses and workers.
In a time of transition, governments must act to ensure the changing structure of our economy does not lead to some workers and families being left behind.
Our government will lead the way in tackling inequality, and creating quality, local secure jobs.
