Labor breaks promise to lower Queensland's unemployment rate

Published:

Unemployment figures released by the ABS today have revealed Queensland's unemployment rate remains alarmingly high at 6.1%.

LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander has warned the Palaszczuk Labor Government has lost control of the state economy and more Queenslanders are jobless as a result.

"Over 161,000 Queenslanders can't find a job thanks to the Palaszczuk Labor Government's economic mismanagement," Mr Mander said.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk keeps promising to get the unemployment rate below 6% but has failed time and time again.
 
"While Australia's unemployment rate has plummeted to 5 per cent, Queenslanders looking for work are doing it extremely tough under Labor.

"We should be leading the other states in job creation and job security, but under Annastacia Palaszczuk we are falling behind."

Mr Mander said the Palaszczuk Labor Government has no economic plan to boost job growth and lower the unemployment rate.

"While NSW is celebrating record low unemployment, Queensland's unemployment is out of control at 2 per cent higher under this Labor Government," Mr Mander said.

"Queenslanders have been slugged five new taxes, confidence is dwindling and a lack of investment by Annastacia Palaszczuk is having a negative effect for our economy.

"Only an LNP Government will create jobs across Queensland and deliver the vital infrastructure projects the state needs."
