FRIDAY MARCH 26 2021 NEWS 05 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA THE federal governments JobMaker hiring credit has supported just one job in the Northern Territory so far. Announced in October last year, the $4bn hiring credit package was aimed at getting Australians aged 35 and younger into work amid the COVID-19 slump with the government estimating it would support 450,000 jobs by years end. But Senate Estimates this week revealed the program was significantly under subscribed, with just 609 jobs supported so far. Of those, only one is in the Northern Territory. The government has pointed to better than expected economic recovery and correspondingly low unemployment rates as a factor behind the sluggish uptake. But it has also acknowledged the application process can be cumbersome. Opposition Treasury spokesman Jim Chalmers (pictured) seized on the data and reiterated concerns the narrow age range of JobMaker could single out and sacrifice workers over 35. Those concerns are exacerbated amid the impending end of the JobKeeper stimulus this Sunday. JobMaker is a total croc, he said. The much-hyped centrepiece of the Morrison governments budget has delivered less than 1 per cent of the 450,000 jobs the Coalition promised. JobMaker revealed as flop in Territory MADURA MCCORMACK COUNTRY Liberals leader Lia Finocchiaro has condemned the actions of a group of men who allegedly performed lewd sex acts on the desk of a female MP in Parliament House after former Coalition staffer Nathan Winn was dismissed on Monday night. The Coalition staffer, who was dismissed following revelations a ring of men had shared images of themselves committing lewd acts in Can NT link to lewd acts Dismissed staffer worked for CLP berras Parliament House, worked for the NTs CLP government nine years ago. Ms Finocchiaro said she condemned the behaviour in the strongest terms. The behaviour, as reported, is completely inappropriate and absolutely unacceptable, she said. Scott Morrison also condemned the groups reported behaviour as sickening this week. That sort of behaviour has no place here, absolutely no place there, the Prime Minister said. Mr Winn previously worked for the federal Liberal Party in opposition in 2008-12, according to now-deleted info on his LinkedIn page. He then went to work for the Country Liberal government in the Northern Territory in 2012. The party regained power in 2012, under the leadership of Terry Mills, after more than a decade of Labor rule in the Territory. Sources familiar with the matter said Mr Winns move to the NT occurred after what one individual described as appalling behaviour and irreconcilable differences with former prime minister Tony Abbotts leadership. Mr Winn was brought back to Canberra in October 2015 to work in the office of the chief government whip, weeks after Malcolm Turnbull won a spill contesting the prime ministership, according to the LinkedIn page. It comes after Sky News host Peta Credlin accused Liberal staffers of holding gay orgies at Parliament House. The former chief of staff to Mr Abbott also warned that she knows the culprits exposed in lewd videos of men in Parliament House. P18-19: FULL COVERAGE NATASHA EMECK CCTV footage captures males breaking into an Alice Springs home while a family sleep. SEVERAL males broke into and ransacked an Alice Springs home late on Monday while five family members were asleep inside. The owner of the property, who did not want to be named, said just before midnight on Monday, his five tenants were asleep when up to three teenagers broke into the house. He said CCTV footage shows the offenders cutting through flywire, prising open a closed window and forcing the window shutter action to allow the smallest of them to enter the house and unlock the back door to let the others in. The thieves ransacked the place very quietly and they took electronics, cash and alcohol anything that could be carried in a shopping bag, he said. All this happened while the family was asleep. The man said the family had been so shaken by the incident they wanted to leave town. It wasnt until someone in the house woke up about 3am that they realised they had been burgled when they saw the cut flywire and the back door was left open, he said. The family are from overseas and they are now absolutely terrified that their home has been violated. NT Police are investigating.
