Shadow Treasurer, Michael O’Brien
Before the election Daniel Andrews promised to create 100,000 full-time jobs within two years.
(Sources: Daniel Andrews media statement – 6 October 2014; Back to Work – Victorian Labor’s Plan for 100,000 Jobs.)
Australian Bureau of Statistics figures released today show the number of people in full-time jobs in the Warrnambool and South West region has fallen from 46,587 in December 2015 to 46,381 in January 2016.
The unemployment rate in Warrnambool and South West has risen from 2.4 per cent in December 2015 to 2.7 per cent in January 2016.
Comments attributable to Shadow Treasurer Michael O’Brien:
Having presided over the V/line debacle, Daniel Andrews has now seen more than two hundred full-time jobs lost in Warrnambool and South West region last month.
This is not good enough, from this Melbourne-centric Labor government.
