With a record 200,000 Queenslanders looking for work, the October 31 State Election will be about who has an economic plan to get Queensland out of recession.
Prior to coronavirus, Queensland had the nation’s highest state debt, highest unemployment, most bankruptcies and lowest businesses confidence.
Annastacia Palaszczuk was the last Premier to announce an economic stimulus package but was the first and only Premier to cancel her state budget.
No Budget means Labor is flying blind through the biggest economic crisis in almost a century.
Because Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor can’t management the economy, Queensland was the most economically vulnerable state heading into the pandemic.
Throughout the pandemic, Queensland has continued to have the highest youth unemployment rate in the nation and the most long-term unemployed.
After five years, it’s clear Labor isn’t working.
Queensland has slipped to the bottom of Australia’s economic ladder after just five years of Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor.
There is no doubt that another four years of Labor will turn our state into Australia’s economic basket case.
The LNP has an ambitious plan to stimulate the economy, create a decade of secure jobs and drag Queensland out of recession.
Our vision is to make Queensland the economic powerhouse of Australia once again, the best place to get a job, get ahead and raise a family.
We will start work on the drought busting New Bradfield Scheme a major new economic driver for Queensland, invest in new infrastructure to create more jobs and stimulate the economy and we will guarantee no new taxes.
The LNP will get Queensland working again.
LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander
