Glenn Stevens the Central Bank Governor forecasts that there would be a slower growth and softer labor market. This was the factor for the overnight 2.25% crash-rate from the year 2011 and this was further cut by 2.5% due to there has been a slip down in the resource investment resources. Though the unemployment percentage rate has not shown any rise the senior economist of Citigroup Inc. Joshua Williamson said, “The government shouldn’t be crowing too loudly because that was a result of less people looking for work. The result is not cataclysmic, but it certainly suggests this is a slowing economy.”

The economic industry has seen a severe currency squeeze of more than $1 from the month of June to May in the 2012. In this period of time there has been a decline in the local dollar rate by 12% and this condition has not assisted the manufacturers of the nation. According to a local gauge survey it was revealed that the manufacturers saw a deep plunge of 7.6 points to 42 during the July month.

This is expected to continue in the near term as the economy adjusts to lower levels of mining investment. The unemployment rate has edged higher.” According to the data issued by the Bloomberg from the labor force figures from the time Labor won the office in the year 2007 November there has been around 962,800 new fresh job opportunities generated. There have been resources of 122,300 mining jobs and 303,500 healthcare jobs created. But the manufacturing industries have declined its employment opportunities for 11,400 employees during this period of time.

The economist Katrina Ell announced to the reporters at Moody’s Analytics in Sydney, “The election has become about who will better guide the economy as it transitions away from mining investment-led growth. Employment isn’t helping the government’s already difficult task of winning over voters.”
