Why Work for the Dole won't work

The sharp rise in youth unemployment represents a lack of opportunity rather than laziness. Reintroducing Work for the Dole will do little to improve the situation and may make matters worse.

Is a kick up the butt all that is needed to help fix Australia’s youth unemployment problem? A sharp decline in benefits and the return of ‘Work for the Dole’ is set to dramatically change the welfare state for young Australians. But although the Work for the Dole scheme might sound like a good idea, the evidence is damning: it may, in fact, make it more difficult to find a job.
