The Australian Unemployed Workers Union is organising an all-day protest against a Max Employment-sponsored conference on long-term unemployment. Considering the conference costs $650 for a concession ticket, the conference is effectively excluding those who are actually unemployed from attending and sharing their experiences. The AUWU is organising a counter-conference out the front entitled 'Unemployed Workers Speak Out'. 9am. Park Hotel, 192 Wellington Parade (opposite Jolimont Station).
