Jobactive or Neighbourhood Watch – spot the difference?

A few months ago some new Federal Government propaganda started appearing on my television screen, featuring a new brand called ‘Jobactive’. But for me, déjà vu was my reaction to their new logo.

Note the resemblance to the Neighbourhood Watch logo?

The Department of Employment webpage on jobactive had this to say on the new brand:

jobactive is the Australian Government’s way to get more Australians into work. It connects job seekers with employers and is delivered by a network of jobactive providers in over 1700 locations across Australia. jobactive replaced Job Services Australia on 1 July 2015.

Given the Liberal Party’s current attitudes to the unemployed are similar to their attitudes towards actual criminals, perhaps the resemblance between the two logos was intentional?

    When I saw the ‘Jobactive’ name, I mis-read it as ‘Jacobite’.

    But that would make sense too – after all was that not a Catholic putsch?

    Just goes to show that you can reverse engineer just about anything into a conspiracy theory.
