Daniel Andrews promised the people of Latrobe Valley that he had a jobs plan.
So far that jobs plan has seen a rise in unemployment of 3.4 per cent in Latrobe since he came to office.
The Andrews Government abolished the $15 million Latrobe Valley Industry and Infrastructure Fund (LVIIF) that supported more than 40 businesses and leveraged close to $100 million in investment, creating 1200 jobs in our community.
At a time when we need to be creating job opportunities in the Latrobe Valley, Daniel Andrews is all talk and no action.
Daniel Andrews is running a Melbourne- centric government that doesn’t care about regional Victorians.
