Yes, this is true.
However those who aren't part of the progress, normally a larger subset,
tend to loose their jobs.
If you had any advanced macro economic background, you'd know that progress
causes unemployment increases.
The way Government uses statistics (here we go!) is to say that 50,000 new
jobs were created.
What it doesn't tell you is that in NSW alone, 85,000 students graduated
from University, 20,000 finished the HSC and did not get University
placement, 40,000 people ceased full time work, and 20,000 people ceased
See my wife and I are not part of the unemployment statistics. We don't
earn an income, and we don't have jobs. But we don't count on the figures
either. I must know hundreds of people who aren't collecting unemployment
benefit or on job search lists and I dare say my exposure is a mere
fraction of a much greater subset.
Anyone offering some casual work is most welcome to call us! We're looking
for little odd activities that help out small business and in return we can
pay our bills!
