As we rebuild from this pandemic, we need to support Victorians to train, retrain and find new opportunity.
We need to help those hardest hit by this pandemic find work – ensuring not only a job, but certainty and self-belief.
And we need to make sure we’re creating strong, secure and decent jobs for the future – and for our future generations.
This Budget provides a comprehensive plan to rebuild our economy, create secure and decent jobs, and ensure a bright future for every Victorian.
At the heart of our economic recovery must be job creation. It’s why this Budget delivers a targeted set of initiatives that form the Jobs Plan.
Jobs for Victoria
The Victorian Government’s new $619 million Jobs for Victoria initiative will assist hundreds of thousands of Victorians looking for work.
Sick pay for insecure workers
This pandemic has exposed many of the frailties in our nation – none more so than insecure and casual work.
Turning digital demand into online opportunity
The pandemic has required a rapid shift to online activity.
Support for Victorian businesses
When the pandemic hit, the Government moved quickly to support Victorian businesses and their workers.
Restarting Victoria's tourism economy
In 2018-19, Victoria’s tourism industry contributed $29.4 billion to our economy – and employed 263,000 Victorians.
Backing our recovery in regional Victoria
Real recovery needs to extend to every corner of our State.
Helping our farmers put food on the table
This year, our farmers have helped keep our State fed. And as we begin our recovery from the pandemic, our farmers and producers will be more important than ever.
Building skills to get back to work
The Victorian Government is investing $1 billion in TAFE and training – driving economic recovery and giving Victorians the skills they need to get back into the workforce.
