Labor will require 20 per cent of work on major NSW Government construction projects be allocated to a combination of:
- Indigenous Australians; and
- People who have been long term unemployed.
Labor’s plan will:
- Create more opportunities for apprentices and trainees; and
- Maximise the benefits of public infrastructure investments by creating opportunities for people to develop their skills.
There are half as many apprentices and trainees in NSW than when the Liberals and Nationals came to office in 2011.
