http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/s...003501,00.htmlAROUND 25 per cent of Australian adults who are unemployed or work part-time want to play a greater role in the workforce, statistics show.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics survey showed that of the 15.4m Australians over the age of 18, 6.3m are unemployed or who work less than 16 hours per week.
Of these people around 1.7m Australians say they want to play a greater role in the workforce but could not for a variety of reasons.
The survey found that around 1.3m people said they were available to start work within four weeks but less than one-third were looking for work.
