Victoria reported the biggest fall in unemployment all around Australia, by falling to 5.3 % in the month of April from 5.8 %, as per the ABS statistics released on Thursday. Simultaneously Murray Goulburn declared job cuts across Tasmania and Victoria, by saying the changes are complicated but essential to make sure it remains competitive. The Treasurer Kim Wells said that, whereas monthly unemployment numbers are unstable, the creation of an additional 23,200 jobs in the Victoria is excellent news for Victorian communities and families.
Mr. Wells said in a statement that, the Victorian federation government has a clear financial strategy to increase productivity as well as generate jobs. This policy is underpinned by the responsible and strong measures they took in the budget of last week to address the faces of a weaker national financial system as well as global instability.
Mr. Wells said that, the record $5.8 billion of the government state infrastructure use over the upcoming year would produce jobs as well as grow economy of the state. Though, Tim Pallas, opposition employment spokesperson said that, jobless rate of Victoria continued to stay over the national average at 4.9 %. Mr. Pallas said that, the statistics were cold comfort as part-time jobs were rising at the expenditure of full-time jobs.
He said that, as Ted Baillieu came to government they seen something such as 18,000 jobs fall out of economy of Victoria and they have seen our unemployment rate increase by 0.4 %. What they do require from this government is a demonstration which they are serious about conserving jobs and certainly growing real as well as full-time jobs wherever possible.
