What is the problem?
The gulf between Indigenous and other Australians remains wide. Indigenous Australians have much lower employment rates than other Australians. This is due to lower levels of education, training and skill levels, poorer health, living in areas with fewer labour market opportunities, higher levels of arrest and interactions with the criminal justice system, discrimination, and lower levels of job retention.
Providing Indigenous Australians with the education, skills and support to find and keep meaningful work, and to build financial self-reliance, is crucial in closing the gap in Indigenous disadvantage.
Our goal is for Indigenous Australians ultimately to enjoy the same standard of living as other Australians - for them to be as healthy, as long-living and as able to participate in the social and economic life of the country. For true Indigenous economic independence and prosperity equal to that of other Australians, there must be a successful Indigenous economy, with vibrant and sustainable Indigenous businesses competing in the corporate sector.
