- Apparently it doesn't matter that Victoria has its highest unemployment rate in 13 years.
- Apparently it doesn't matter that youth unemployment in Melbourne’s North-West is now 15 per cent.
- Apparently it doesn't matter that Australia already has over one million temporary visitors whose visas give them work rights.
- Apparently it doesn't matter that the Victorian Government has been touting job creation as the key justification for a project which will wreck Royal Park and the Moonee Ponds Creek, raid Victoria's transport budget and leave the cupboard bare for years to come, and which has secret contracts and no public business case.
This scandalous project has now achieved a new low. The Federal Liberal Government wanted the unemployed to apply for 40 jobs every month, but the Victorian Liberal Government is writing off their chance to apply for just one.
