Despite already having very low unemployment Team Katy are promising more jobs all round:

ACT Labor is committed to a modern, dynamic and responsive public service.

A re-elected ACT Labor Government will continue to enhance services to the community and support jobs growth in priority areas such as health. Our plan for Health will see another 500 nurses, doctor and allied health professionals employed.

We will not slash and burn the public service as we return our Budget to surplus.

We will also increase our whole-of-government graduate intake by 10% a year for the next four years – recruiting and supporting the next generation of public sector leaders.

We will increase our trainee and apprenticeship intake by at least 10% a year.

We remain committed to creating a great environment for private business to thrive and create jobs. A re-elected ACT Labor Government will progressively provide $7.92 million to cut payroll tax and create around 575 more jobs in Canberra.

ACT Labor will continue to invest in public infrastructure projects.

And we will continue to support apprentices through funding for the CIT and other vocational education providers.
