FUTURE OF WORK PROJECT
Queenslanders are being encouraged to contribute to the discussion on what the future will mean for jobs in Queensland. On Friday 15th February 2019. Minister for Training and Skills Development Shannon Fentiman launched the Jobs Queensland’s discussion paper The Future of Work in 2030 – Evolution or revolution?, see the full ministerial statement here.
