CONTENDERER BRENDAN O'Connor....Employment stats

  1. Employment stats

    JUDITH Sloan questions my statement that Labor has created almost a million jobs ("Job creation no government miracle", 27-28/7).
    Well, these are the facts: more than 966,000 jobs have been created since Labor came to office in November 2007. That's a 10 per cent increase in total jobs across the economy.
    What makes this achievement remarkable is those 966,000 jobs were created in Australia during a time when 27 million people around the world lost their jobs during, and in the wake of, the global financial crisis.
    Our economic management has seen Australia maintain one of the lowest average unemployment rates among the world's advanced industrialised economies.
