Jobs

Won’t this gas rush create lots of jobs?

Well, no.
Mining and gas companies, along with our governments are promising ‘jobs, jobs, jobs’ but when mines and gas wells take farms out of production, jobs in other sectors are lost.

Agriculture and related food production are actually much bigger generators of jobs in Queensland and these sectors are directly at risk from coal mining and gas drilling.

Continued investment in coal and CSG is also causing huge losses of potential jobs in renewable energy.
