Queensland left languishing under Labor


New independent data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has found that Queensland Building approvals have tumbled to near ten-year lows under Labor.

Queensland's building industry hasn't been hit this hard since the decade-low reached under Labor's Anna Bligh in December 2011.

Fewer building approvals means fewer jobs for Queenslanders.

Queensland now has the highest unemployment rate in the nation with more than 178,000 residents officially jobless – the highest number of unemployed Queenslanders in our state's history.

The federal bankruptcy regulator has also recently confirmed Queensland continues to be the bankruptcy capital of Australia.

Almost 4,500 bankruptcies have occurred in Queensland in the last 12 months, which accounts for nearly 1 in every 3 bankruptcies across the country.

It's no coincidence these statistics fall under Annastacia Palaszczuk's time as Premier.

The Palaszczuk Labor Government is smashing Queensland's economy with nine new or increased taxes, slashing infrastructure investment and destroying jobs.

Queensland used to be the economic powerhouse of the country, but it now holds the unenviable titles of the jobless capital of Australia with the most bankruptcies as well.

Only a Deb Frecklington LNP Government will get Queensland working again.

After five years of failure, it's clear Labor has no plan for our economy – but the LNP does.

The LNP will create jobs and improve job security by building better roads and new dams, cutting electricity prices in the regions and guaranteeing no new taxes.
