Liberal National Party Deputy Leader Tim Mander said today's unemployment figures were a sad indictment on Annastacia Palaszczuk's "fluff before substance" government.
"On Labor's preferred measure, unemployment in Queensland has risen from 6.1% to a whopping 6.5% - the equal worst in the nation," Mr Mander said.
"Quite frankly, all we have seen from Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk since the election is fluffy photo ops.
"Annastacia Palaszczuk has no economic plan for our state except new taxes.
"Stagnant wages growth, high unemployment, a youth jobs crisis in regional Queensland and flat-lining business confidence are all symptoms of Labor's economic mismanagement.
"In stark contrast, Deb Frecklington's plan is all about creating jobs and moving Queensland from last to first in the employment State of Origin."
Seasonally Adjusted unemployment rate:
· Seasonally adjusted up to 6.5% from 6.1% - equal worst in the Nation
· Queensland lost 8,200 jobs (seasonally adjusted) last month. Only behind Victoria in terms of jobs lost (10,000)
