Small businesses on the Sunshine Coast are buckling under the weight of Queensland’s self-serving Labor Government.

Last year alone 150 local business who each employed between 5 to 19 staff went bust.

We should be celebrating and champion the success of small businesses to create jobs not driving them to the wall.

You just have to look at the number of ‘for lease’ signs around town to see the damage that Labor is doing.

Annastacia Palaszczuk’s anti-jobs and anti-regions government has already pushed 11,500 locals into the unemployment que.

With Labor set to introduce even more taxes in the upcoming budget, it’s only a matter of time until more businesses go bust and more jobs are lost.

The Palaszczuk Labor Government has never been interested in helping local small businesses get ahead.

Instead of creating jobs, every year since Annastacia Palaszczuk was elected the Sunshine Coast has been slugged with more taxes and more red tape.

As Labor continue to cut funding to services and infrastructure, more and more is taken from the Sunshine Coast with fewer and fewer services being provided back.

Under an LNP Government there’ll be no more taxes for the Sunshine Coast.

We’ve already guaranteed that if elected there’ll be no new taxes for Queensland.

We want the Sunshine Coast shopfronts open and workshops buzzing to deliver the jobs boom that Annastacia Palaszczuk has been blocking.
