New data shows 177,500 jobs created since 2015

The Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to growing the economy helped deliver 7,100 new jobs in August, including 6,200 new full-time jobs.

Acting Treasurer Kate Jones said that today’s ABS Labour Force data showed more people in Queensland were finding full-time work.

“Today’s data shows that in the past month we have created another 7,100 jobs across Queensland,” Ms Jones said.  

“This is the strongest rate of jobs growth in the country this month.

“The number one priority of the Palaszczuk Government is delivering jobs which is clear when you think about the 177,500 new Queensland jobs that have been created since January 2015.

“This is the 23rd straight month of trend jobs growth with thousands more people finding work this month alone.
