The Australian Council of Trade Unions president says she’s not comfortable with a new government hotline that calls on businesses to ‘dob in’ people on welfare who refuse jobs.

Michele O’Neil told Neil Mitchell it was misguided.

“It’s the wrong focus,” she said.

“What we are worried about is that there is not enough jobs for the number of people who are out of work,” she said.

“There are two million people in Australia right now who don’t have a job or don’t have enough hours and they’re doing it really tough.”
