Coalition moves on job creation
The Coalition is set to challenge Labor on the development of job-creation policies and initiatives for the economic crisis.
Leader of the Opposition Malcolm Turnbull today launched the Jobs for Australia website. It encourages Australians to have their say about the jobs crisis and to put forward their suggestions about better ways to create jobs.
The Coalition will also hold a series of nation-wide community forums that will give Australians the opportunity to talk about their their ideas and personal experience.
At the first Jobs for Australia forum, held today in Parramatta, Mr Turnbull said:
“The three top priorities for 2009 are jobs, jobs, jobs. We are committed to ensuring that we get every good idea, every bit of feedback we can to ensure that we can present alternative policies which will promote employment and deliver on jobs, jobs, jobs.”
