Queensland businesses lose confidence under Labor
LNP Shadow Treasurer Tim Mander said the latest CCIQ Pulse Survey shows that businesses have no confidence in the Palaszczuk Labor Government.
“This is just another vote of no confidence by Queensland businesses in this Labor Government,” Mr Mander said.
“Small business is the backbone of our economy, employing the vast majority of Queenslanders and these businesses are hurting under Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor.
“Annastacia Palaszczuk’s has no economic plan for Queensland businesses except new taxes.”
Mr Mander said Labor’s lack of action in the first 100 days and union control were all key issues identified by Queensland businesses.
“Business knows that this Labor Government are owned by the trade union bosses – lock, stock and barrel,” he said.
“Stagnant wages growth, high unemployment, a youth jobs crisis in regional Queensland and flat-lining business confidence are all symptoms of Labor’s economic mismanagement.
“Let’s not forget we have the equal highest unemployment rate in the nation at 6.5 per cent.”
