South Australian internet job vacancies are at half the levels of 2006 – the worst performance of all states during this period.
According to Federal Government data, trend internet job vacancies in SA also fell by 1.1 per cent in March – the worst performance of all states.
“South Australian job vacancies continue to fall under Premier Weatherill and Labor,” said Shadow Education Minister David Pisoni.
“Premier Weatherill and Labor have delivered the worst job opportunity results in Australia.
“New unemployment data for March has revealed that South Australia is experiencing its highest unemployment rate in 12 years and regional South Australia is experiencing its highest unemployment rate in 14 years.
“Under Premier Weatherill and Labor, South Australia is suffering under the highest taxes in the nation, the worst performing workers’ compensation scheme in the nation and the worst small business conditions and small business confidence in the nation.
“The Weatherill Labor Government has simply failed to create an environment that encourages and supports business growth in South Australia.
“After 12 years of Mr Weatherill and Labor, South Australians deserve better.”
