Labor's hopeless Treasurer Jackie Trad is driving Queensland businesses to the wall.
The latest survey from the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) has revealed that business confidence is now 4.2 points lower than a year ago.
An overwhelming majority of businesses now fear for the future, under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.
Without confidence in the future, Queensland businesses are being forced to put-off staff and cut shifts.
The first post-Budget survey also showed a staggering 80 per cent of all businesses are expecting the state's dire economic conditions to stagnate or worsen.
It's no wonder Queensland has the highest unemployment rate in mainland Australia.
Annastacia Palaszczuk's addiction to tax is smashing our economy with 10 new taxes that are ripping $3.5 billion from hard working Queenslanders.
Jackie Trad may be making a mint from her private property portfolio, but she has been a disaster as Treasurer of this state.
Labor's latest job-destroying budget hiked taxes even further, increased Queensland's debt and slashed funding for infrastructure.
Only a Deb Frecklington LNP Government will restore Queensland's confidence by building job-creating infrastructure, ending Labor's waste and guaranteeing no new taxes.
