The Palaszczuk Labor Government seems to have a death wish for small business.
It's only a matter of time until more businesses go bust and more jobs are lost, following the Palaszczuk Labor Government's decision around QBuild.
If Annastacia Palaszczuk was serious about supporting small businesses, she shouldn't take away essential work from small businesses, when they are already doing it tough.
The Sensis survey of small and medium-sized businesses found that Queensland has the third highest share of small businesses in the country that are extremely worried about the future and Labor's decision around QBuild clearly shows how out of touch Labor is.
It's no surprise that the Sensis survey of small and medium-sized businesses also found the Palaszczuk Labor Government to be one of the worst in the country when asked if Government's policies are supportive of small businesses.
Small Businesses employ approximately 44% of all private sector workers and these courageous entrepreneurs put their blood, sweat and capital on the line to create jobs and opportunity for themselves, their families and others.
They not only build regional economies (with 97% of businesses being small businesses) but they build cities and towns and sponsor sports and community groups.
But time after time the Palaszczuk Labor Government tries to hinder small businesses at having a fair go.
Only the LNP's small business policies are about building a better future for business and delivering job security with no new taxes and less red tape.
