A record-breaking 500,000 new jobs have been created since the New South Wales Liberals & Nationals were elected in April 2011.

Jobs boom has been driven by increased female participation, which has reached an all-time high.

In the most stunning example of the economic revitalisation of New South Wales, 305,000 jobs were created since the last election in 2015, double the Government’s jobs commitment.

New South Wales Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the New South Wales economy was the driving force underpinning Australia since the end of the mining boom.

“Half a million people is about the combined population of Newcastle, Bathurst, Tamworth and Coffs Harbour. That gives you an idea of the magnitude of the economic revolution sparked by this government.” Treasurer Perrottet said.

“An economy that is creating jobs is one that is creating stability for people and families and giving them the ability to improve their standard of living and plan for the future.”

Jobs boom has been especially strong for women with female participation hitting an all-time high of 59.7 %.

New South Wales female unemployment rate was 4.7%, the lowest of any state in Australia, while jobs growth for women was 6% in the past year.

Male unemployment rate was 5.2 % and the New South Wales unemployment rate 5 %.

Treasurer Perrottet said in the past year 156,000 new jobs were created with 142,000 of these being full time roles.

“It’s a great testament to everything we have done to rebuild New South Wales after Labor left it bogged up to the axles and incapable of moving forward.” Treasurer Perrottet said.
