Queensland’s dynamic labour market

labourmobilityToday’s new ABS data on labour mobility show Queensland has one of the most dynamic labour markets in Australia, with one of the highest proportions of workers having been with their current employer for under twelve months (chart above). I expect this is related to Queensland’s relatively younger population and our higher proportion of casual employment – related in part to the greater importance of tourism in our economy than in the economies of other States and Territories.
