Queenslanders feel forgotten despite record 26 straight years of economic growth: poll

The ABC’s Rebecca Hyam reports (20.7.18) on the release of research into community perceptions of ‘economic disconnect’ in various parts of Australia.

‘Queenslanders are feeling short-changed from Australia’s record quarter-century run of economic growth, according to poll results released today.

‘The Queensland results form part of research entitled Community Pulse 2018: the Economic Disconnect, commissioned by the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA).

‘Researchers polled 3,000 people nationally, with almost 500 of those respondents from across Queensland.

‘The study explored who had gained from Australia’s 26 consecutive years of economic growth, their most important issues personally and to the nation as well as their attitudes to work.

‘CEDA chief executive Melinda Cilento said there appeared to be a disconnect between the country’s economic good fortunes and sentiment among households, and the feeling was especially acute in Queensland.’
