CRANBOURNE UNEMPLOYMENT ON THE RISE

Press Releases
CRANBOURNE UNEMPLOYMENT ON THE RISE

Unemployment has climbed significantly in Cranbourne under Daniel Andrews.  

Figures released by the Australian Department of Employment this week indicate that since the election of the Andrews Government in December 2014, the number of unemployed people in the suburbs of Cranbourne has risen by 25.5 per cent. 

This represents an additional 782 unemployed local people across the suburbs of Cranbourne, Cranbourne North, Cranbourne South, Cranbourne East and Cranbourne West.  

Unemployment in Cranbourne has never been higher than it has over the past twelve months, and there are now consistently more than 3850 people in Cranbourne unable to get work.

It is clear that after the best part of three years in government, Daniel Andrews has completely failed to deliver on his commitment to create new local jobs for the people of Cranbourne. 

Compounding the difficulties faced by unemployed people in Cranbourne, Daniel Andrews has forced energy bills to rise out of control, introduced 11 new state taxes, and overseen a 20 per cent increase in state taxation since being elected Premier.

Quotes attributable to Mr Rich-Phillips, Member for South-Eastern Metropolitan Region:

“Daniel Andrews promised jobs for Cranbourne, but has delivered higher unemployment, higher taxes, and higher costs of living.”

“A 25.5% increase in the number of unemployed people in Cranbourne, including a 66.3% increase in Cranbourne East, shows Daniel Andrews’ plan for local jobs has been a comprehensive flop.”
