While Daniel Andrews spends his time rorting $388,000 of taxpayers’ money, Victoria’s unemployment rate continues to rise with 11,300 Victorian jobs lost last month alone.
Today’s unemployment figures show that while the New South Wales economy continues to stride ahead, Victoria remains weighed down by the rorting Daniel Andrews’ 12 new taxes and over $20 billion in budget blowouts.
It’s clear that Daniel Andrews and Tim Pallas are too distracted covering up the extent of Labor’s rorting to focus on Victoria’s economy.
Victoria’s unemployment rate is now 5.7% while New South Wales has an unemployment rate of just 4.8%.
These aren’t just statistics on a spreadsheet, they represent real people who are without a job – mums and dads, young people trying to earn money to buy their first home, older workers trying to save for retirement and young kids out of school hoping to build a future.
It is now the 18th consecutive month where Victoria’s unemployment rate has been higher than the national average.
Victoria is now the highest taxing state in Australia thanks to Daniel Andrews; this is not how to encourage businesses to employ more workers.
With NSW having an unemployment rate massively lower than Victoria’s, it is clear that Daniel Andrews should spend less time rorting taxpayers and more time growing Victoria’s economy.
