Victoria’s unemployment rate lags behind, while NSW steams ahead

Under Daniel Andrews and Labor Victoria’s unemployment rate has risen, while NSW under a Liberal Government has seen their unemployment rate decrease.

The August 2019 ABS unemployment figures show that 4,160 more Victorians were unemployed, compared to the 7,755 fewer unemployed in NSW.

Despite Labor’s political rhetoric about job creation as a result of Labor’s debt doubling “Big Build”, the numbers speak for themselves with 8,731 fewer Victorians in full-time employment compared to a month ago.

These latest statistics reveal the impact of Daniel Andrews’ high tax and anti-business policy agenda: fewer jobs in Victoria.

Private sector employers are the true engine room for job growth in Victoria however under Daniel Andrews, doing business in Victoria is becoming harder and harder.
