VICTORIA'S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

Today’s unemployment figures show that Victoria has fallen behind South Australia and the National unemployment rate.

While the New South Wales economy continues to stride ahead, Victoria remains at the back of the pack weighed down by Daniel Andrews’ 12 new taxes and over $24 billion in budget blowouts.  

Victoria’s unemployment rate has climbed to 5.6% while New South Wales has dropped to an unemployment rate of just 4.7%. 

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 school-leavers hoping to build
a future.

While Daniel Andrews is distracted dealing with the fallout of his rorts for votes saga, the economy is clearly taking second place.

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’ 12 new taxes and budget blowouts are failing and costing
Victorian jobs.
