Hodgman & Gutwein’s job destroying agenda

  • Details on $450M of cuts still hidden
  • Thousands of jobs lost under Hodgman and Gutwein

Will Hodgman and Peter Gutwein have blown Tasmania’s Budget and their only plan to fix it is to cut $450 million in jobs and essential services.

Shadow Treasurer David O’Byrne said this was far from the Golden Age that Peter Gutwein promised.

“Peter Gutwein’s shameless spin and self-confidence can’t paper over the fact that more than 5000 full time jobs have been destroyed over the past 12 months,” Mr O’Byrne said.

“The Liberals are driving the Budget into $1.1 billion in debt and their only answer is to cut jobs and cut services.

“And to make matters worse – Peter Gutwein doesn’t even have the courage to tell Tasmanians where these cuts are coming from and what services will be impacted.

“The Liberals have no vision for our economy, and everyday Tasmanians are paying for it.

“Will Hodgman and Peter Gutwein need to front up, come clean on the cuts and tell us how they plan to make the economy to work for all Tasmanians.”
