Hobart is a city which values its workforce and offers specific policies to assist in the management of occupational health and safety, housing and transport.
As Hobart grows many workers struggle to maintain their basic lifestyle because housing costs and transport issues impact on family life.
As Lord Mayor I would host a forum with employers and unions to:
- Assess the need for affordable housing for specific groups of inner city workers.
- Consider access to safe parking for shift workers.
- The development of Workplace Travel Plans to provide a range of transport options and incentives.
