ABC Fact Check on unemployment in Queensland

ABC’s Fact Check on Labor’s claim that unemployment is its highest in 11 years was tested by Fact Check (291.1.5). The conclusion: 

‘Ms Palaszczuk’s claim that Queensland’s jobless rate “is the highest for 11 years… There are almost 31,000 more Queenslanders without a job since March 2012” is backed up by the ABS’s official data. Ms Palaszczuk is correct.’
