The Queensland state budget it set to bring a number of changes to the region, but one that local residents do have to look forward to is the promise of new jobs. More than $750million is to be allocated to giving Queenslanders access to the skills and training they need to pursue their careers.
Training and skills minister Yvette D'Ath explained that people throughout the area would be given assistance, so the funding will not just benefit those living in the biggest cities.
"This training is the first step on the career path for thousands of young people," she commented.
"Jobs are our number one priority and Skilling Queenslanders for Work will help up to 8,000 Queenslanders find work in its first year."
Initial estimates suggest that the funding will help as many as 37,000 people each year be ready to go into employment. Residents of real estate in Elimbah and other areas will be given the opportunity to train in a variety of different disciplines, including everything from hospitality to transport, retail and aged care.
The latest seasonally adjusted unemployment figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) show that six per cent of people across the nation were out of a job in May this year. This marks a fall of 0.2 percentage points from April levels.
ABS data showed that the number of people in employment increased by 42,000 in May to reach 11.76million. This was largely driven by a rise in part-time positions for women and full-time roles for men.
