This week's episode of 'On the Job' is a double feature.

First up, ACTU President, Michele O'Neil, joins us for a discussion about Labor's Climate Bill which has just been passed in parliament. How will it impact the lives of working Australians? What opportunities and challenges will it present? Is the promise of a new, green economy one that will offer good, secure jobs?

Then we turn the spotlight on one of Australia's favourite front men. Phil Jamieson made a name for himself as the singer with the legendary Australian band, Grinspoon. Like so many artists, he found his working life come to a shuddering halt at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Having found his way through that, he has just released his very first solo album called "Somebody Else".

Phil joins us to discuss how those in the music industry have been impacted by the pandemic, how artists and those who work with them are rebuilding Australia's live music scene, and how his love of music is what sustained him.
