Jobs for the Future


HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [6.19 pm]: I rise to acknowledge that WA has done one of the best jobs in the world of dealing with the public health impacts of COVID-19. We have seen people’s trust and approval in government at both federal and state levels rise dramatically as a result. I have to say that was partially because it has been, I think, very clear that governments have been acting in the best interests of people and not corporations.


HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [6.20 pm]: I rise tonight to make some comments about the issue of disability employment within Western Australia. It is a matter that I am taking a particularly keen interest in at the moment and I want to make sure that young people with disability and emerging disability can avail themselves of employment options into the future. We know that around four million Australians have disability, and that is about 18 per cent of the population. Over one-third of Australian households have a person with disability.
