Unemployment rate on the up under Palaszczuk

Published:

The latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics released today showed Queensland’s unemployment rate has jumped to 6.4 per cent on trend terms.

LNP Deputy Leader and Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander said Queensland had the highest trend unemployment rate on mainland Australia under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

“The staggering unemployment queue is now more than 173,000,” Mr Mander said.

“The Palaszczuk Labor Government has hit Queenslanders with 10 new or increased taxes this term.

“Labor’s taxes are weakening our economy and destroying jobs.

“Only Tasmania (6.7 per cent) has a worse trend unemployment rate than Queensland and that’s nothing to be proud of.

“Queensland has gone from being an economic powerhouse to the unemployment capital of mainland Australia under Annastacia Palaszczuk.

“All Labor has delivered is higher taxes, more debt, less jobs and less infrastructure.

“Only the LNP has an economic plan to create jobs, build the congestion-busting infrastructure the state needs and support our regions”
