“Whatever you choose to do, do it well, so throw yourself into your work and be the best you can be.”
Hume MP Angus Taylor said the right policy settings were in place, with the Australian economy creating, on average, more than 800 new jobs per day over the past 12 months.
“Full-time employment has increased strongly. Female employment has increased. While the labour force figures can jump around from month to month, the results over the past year continue to reflect a strong labour market,” Mr Taylor said.
