WA Jobs First
A McGowan Labor Government will on day one tear up the list of occupations that fast tracks overseas workers to WA and replace it with a new list that reflects WA's changed economic circumstances.
We will also seek to immediately have Perth removed from the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme.
In these difficult economic times, we have to make the most of every opportunity. There are currently 92,500 people unemployed in WA and our priority will be to ensure they are first in line for WA jobs.
By making these changes, WA Labor will ensure we make the most of the jobs and opportunities that will flow from the construction of projects like METRONET.
Only WA Labor has a Plan for Jobs.
Only a McGowan Labor Government will keep WA jobs in WA.
