LOCAL JOBS LOST THANKS TO MORRISON’S MISTAKES
As South-Western Sydney’s COVID-19 crisis deepens, working families across our region are hurting as a direct result of the Morrison-Joyce Government’s 18 months of failures on vaccines, quarantine, and economic support.
New ABS data shows that payroll jobs across South-West Sydney has fallen by as much as 13.5 per cent since June 26, when our community was plunged into lockdown because of Scott Morrison’s incompetence.
This data doesn’t capture the impact on self-employed workers, who have also been hit hard by these lockdowns.
“These job losses are a direct result of the Morrison Government’s mistakes.” Ms Stanley said.
“It is now common knowledge that Scott Morrison has botched the vaccine rollout and the Australian economy is suffering billions of dollars a week because of it.
“More importantly thousands of workers and small businesses have been hit hard as a direct consequence.
“Since the beginning of the Pandemic, Labor have claimed the nation’s economic recovery is hostage to the vaccine rollout.
“It isn’t possible to have a strong workforce and economy with a weak vaccine rollout.
“The Morrison Government’s failure with the vaccine rollout has risked lives, jobs and our recovery.” Ms Stanley said.
