I think this is a sign of high unemployment rate. Mainly people need to bring food to the table but have no choice to work part time/casual work. They might have facing retrenchment or so.
How do we define unemployment rate? Are those people who totally out of job for 2 years considered unemployment? How bout people unemployed for 1 year? I'm confused...

It could be true about the elections or perhaps just in the country there is few jobs.

I think it refers to people who don't have any type of work - who are just sitting at home
whether you are casual or permanent you still considered employed.

well, that's pretty sad though.
How would you sustain the family income with the odd jobs?For a family of 4 will be facing financial hardship. Besides that new immigrants are not entitle for centrelink's assistance for 2 years.

The toughest period is more to the first two years if you go through it. After that depends on your financial background and continues work income, it should be alright. My own experience is a tough one as compared with my whole life journey. l have never see so many changes in my entire life than the first 2-3 years l came into Australia. For those who are interested to change their life, please prepare for a change.

I found a job in australia on the very first day i sent an CV out. It all depends on what skills you have, and finding a way to make them viable in Australia.

There are lots of career oppertunities here, just remember to think outside the box a little!
