Yes – you did read that correctly! While most Australians could be excused for thinking that the economy is tanking and the sky is going to fall in (because that is what we are led to believe by the press) the real figures show a totally different story. Unemployment in September drop significantly. It dropped from 7.5% to 6.8% which in fact is the biggest drop in unemployment in 32 years!  Unemployment across ALL states dropped in August

This is fantastic news and good for confidence. Funny how we don’t hear to much in the press about it. It is very sad that good news doesn’t sell papers…..
