One In Four Young Australian Adults Are Idle

Kick their butts out the door


ONE in four young Australians do not work or study despite Australia's growing wealth, a national report to be released on Wednesday shows.

The report also shows the government is well behind on its goal to double the number of working-age Australians with a higher-level qualification by 2020.

The Council of Australian Governments reform council issued progress reports on education systems across Australia, and workforce participation.
