Sky News presenter Chris Kenny says elderly care in Australia is also an sector that has been “particularly hard hit” by the labor shortage, as national unemployment remains at a record low.

Mr. Kenny discussed the matter with Angela Raguz of Hammond Care.

“The pay for many of our primary care workers isn’t great and so when other opportunities come, people will move on,” she said.

“Other reasons are it’s a really tough job, it’s a really tough job and I think sometimes the staff feel unappreciated by society as a whole, by the community.”
