Labour Hire Sydney: The Industry is growing
Labour Hire is currently at an all time high in Sydney with a massive amount of construction, infrastructure, civil and fit-out projects in full swing across the city the demand for Labour Hire in Sydney has never been greater. Some of the key factors for this is the rise of unemployment coupled with the lack of youth that are entering the Construction Industry. According to the 2017 IBIS World Report the Labour Hire industry currently stands at $20bn with an average annual growth of 2.2%.
With the growth of this demand, Sydney is a dream destination for migrant workers to settle in. With its fantastic weather, great quality of life and multi-cultural diversity. It is also the number on city in Australia for jobs and career opportunities, so its no wonder there is a constant supply of skilled migrant workers looking to start a life in Sydney.
Unfortunately this massive demand for skilled labour in the construction industry has also seen a growth of rogue labour hire agencies that are trying to make a quick buck by exploiting these migrant workers by paying poor wages, providing no training or career pathway and sending inexperienced workers to sites all across the city. These rogue agencies are only interested in how much they can get from their clients with absolutely no care for their workers.
