The Western Australian government is touting for school cleaners, gardeners and tourism workers amid chronic worker shortages in the booming state. Tourism Minister Sheila McHale last week announced funding of $590,000 to attract workers needed to run the $5 billion a year tourism industry. “The new funding will see the government boost attraction programs, focus on holiday workers and students and develop more marketing materials to inform and attract potential workers,” she said in a statement. Ms McHale said the top 10 biggest industry employers would attend a workshop later this month to discuss the proposed initiatives and provide input.
