WA’s economy has recovered from the initial impact of COVID-19 with strong support from the mining industry.

The ABS Labour Force report for October showed WA’s unemployment rate fell from 4.1 per cent to 3.9 per cent , as full-time employment grew. This is the lowest unemployment rate in the nation and lowest in WA since July 2012.

WA was the only State in Australia to experience a fall in the unemployment rate, which is now at least 1.2 percentage points lower than any other State.

For example, one online employment agency over 26,000 vacancies currently advertised in WA alone.

Comments attributed to WA Premier Mark McGowan

“Western Australia’s world-leading response to the COVID-19 pandemic has laid the foundation for strong economic growth.

“Today’s data not only highlights WA success but also the economic impacts that COVID-19 has had in NSW and Victoria – with both States’ unemployment rates much higher.

“With investment in WA growing and more and more projects coming online, our unemployment rate has dipped to its lowest level since 2012.

WA is now regarded as the safest and strongest State in the nation
