Sunshine Coast struggling under a do-nothing Labor Government

Queensland is crying out for support and leadership, after a new report showed Queenslanders are worse off today than they were eight years ago.

In the latest State of the Regions report the Sunshine Coast unemployment rate has been listed at 7.1 per cent, but would be higher if not for the number of people dropping out of the labour market because things have become too hard.

Currently, more than four out of 10 people in the region don’t work.

Last year, 30,000 jobs disappeared from Queensland. This was our worst year on record, with no signs of improvement from this do-nothing Labor Government.

Queenslanders have been stranded for three years without leadership, without direction, without a clear plan.

And these latest stats show people on the Sunshine Coast are earning less and don’t have as much disposable income.

Wages and salaries have dropped by almost $1,000 in the last year.

This is the second year where wages and salaries for the Sunshine Coast region have gone backwards.

Our regions are struggling and this do-nothing Labor Government has no plans to turn things around.
