ANZ data shows the number of job ads fell by 10% in trend terms and 13 % seasonally adjusted over the last 12 months.

“This is just the latest data to show that the Labor-Green Government is wrecking our economy.” Shadow Treasurer Peter Gutwein said today.

“Under Labor and the Greens, private investment has completely collapsed, we are in a retail recession and businesses and the community have completely lost faith in this Labor-Green Government.”

“The uncertainty and instability that Labor and the Greens have created right through our economy has resulted in jobs disappearing.” Mr. Gutwein said.

“This data shows that the ‘economic renaissance’ that Former Premier David Bartlett promised has been well and truly killed off by Premier Lara Giddings and Greens Leader Nick McKim.”

“While other businesses around the country are expanding and growing, for businesses in Tasmania it is a daily struggle just to survive.” Mr. Gutwein said.
