WA | Only state/territory to see unemployment rate fall

July 23, 2019

More good news for WA! In the latest release of monthly jobs figures, WA ranked as the only state or territory to see its unemployment rate fall.

Our employment rates have continued to climb the past 5 months with 30,000 fewer people looking for a job in June than there were in January. These positive results are also backed by business sentiment.

The latest survey by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s showed more businesses expect the economy to improve over the next 12 months than those who expect it to deteriorate.
