Unemployed Victorians suffer


It's not just a case of buckling down, or moving to areas of higher employment. If the jobs aren't there, everyday Victorians like Owen will continue to suffer.


In October 2014, four years into the Liberal Government, Premier Napthine finally unveiled a shiny brochure he calls a jobs plan. But it's short on detail about what new jobs will be created, and how, and when.


Crucially, there are questions about just how many jobs will stay in Victoria, and how many will be sent overseas. 


We need our politicians to take job creation seriously. 


Share Owen's story, and help make unemployment an election issue!
