Population growth outstripping job growth: Labor MP
AUSTRALIA'S rapid growth cannot keep up with the country's employment needs, a key Labor MP says.
The "disconnect" between jobs and population must be addressed, Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese told The Bolt report on Sunday.
"At the moment, my concern is that the growth in jobs - there's a disconnect between growth in jobs and growth in population of where they're occurring," the party's spokesman on infrastructure, transport and tourism said.
"So, you're having drive-in/drive-out suburbs without people having access to work, or even community infrastructure.
"So, we need to make sure that we get that right."
