A new Federal Government incentive is now available to help local businesses hire additional staff.

Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Marise Payne welcomed the changes, saying they will help local business to hire young people throughout western Sydney.

New wage subsidies are a key component of the Government’s new jobactive PaTH Program, which will be fully rolled out in April and will help up to 120,000 vulnerable young Australians (aged 17-24) through pre-employment training, internships and these new wage subsidies.

“Financial incentives of up to $10,000 are available to encourage businesses to employ new staff. This will help our local economy and in turn, create more jobs,” Senator Payne said.

“There is no higher priority for our community and for the Government than creating jobs. It will not only assist with growing our economy, but will also help western Sydney residents become job ready.”

“I’m delighted to see these incentives are being improved, to support more local employers to hire more workers,” Senator Payne said.

“Our jobactive PaTH Program is all about getting young people ready, giving them a go and getting them a job.

“I strongly encourage more local business owners to take advantage of this program, including new wage subsidies, to take on extra staff and grow their business,” Senator Payne said.
