Job payments hailed by Mitchell MP

Mitchell MP Alex Hawke has welcomed new payments to get more young job-seekers into work.

"The Job Commitment Bonus will encourage young, long term unemployed job seekers aged 18-30 by paying eligible job-seekers $2500 if they get a job and remain in continuous work for 12 months," he said.

"A further $4000 will be paid if they remain in continuous work and off income support for two years."

Other payments were for job-seekers who relocate to a regional or metropolitan area, with extra help for families with dependent children.
