Jobs survey
 

Six months from an election, comments from the Labor-friendly unions and Green-leaning Australia Institute need to be taken with more than a grain of salt.

The fact is, during the past year, Tasmania's employment grew at the fastest rate in the country, and 3500 full time jobs have been created since the election.

But we know there's a lot more to do which is why unlike Labor and the Greens we have set new jobs targets for our next term, and are releasing policies to achieve them.

It's also incredibly hypocritical that on the one hand the Australia Institute calls for more full time jobs, but on the other opposes fish farming at Okehampton Bay, which is creating the full time jobs they call for.
