SMOKE & MIRRORS
The Illusion of the Employment Services Sector
WE HAVE A GLOBAL EMPLOYMENT PROBLEM
Smoke & Mirrors, The Illusion of the Employment Services Sector, pulls back the curtain on the dark side of outcome based, government funded employment services. Despite the billions of tax dollars invested, the sector itself has become a significant barrier to employment for under-represented groups, the very populations it is funded to serve. With the demand for ‘good news!’ stories to propel governments to election wins, the problem is created by politicians, perpetuated by public servants, and sustained by employment service providers— all magicians behind the illusion.
