Parramatta's Key Workers

CITY COUNCIL PARRAMATTA'S KEY WORKERS Parramatta's continued growth relies on key workers, including teachers, midwives, nurses, fire fighters and police, health and welfare support workers, cleaners and laundry workers, child carers, hospitality workers, defence force members and car, bus and rail drivers. Key workers provide services essential to the economic sustainability and social diversity of our City, but only earn low or moderate incomes. As Parramatta grows and our housing market becomes more expensive, these key workers will be priced out of their homes and be forced to live further away from their jobs.
