A Budget for Jobs

The 2016 State Budget has a responsibility to protect the jobs of today and create the right settings for the jobs of tomorrow.

In its State Budget submission, Master Builders SA is calling for Budget-neutral changes that can spark new jobs and consolidate existing jobs in South Australia’s building and construction industry.

Smart infrastructure investment, expansion of key investment initiatives beyond the city limits and a focus on the long-term impact of State Government processes can establish a strong culture of job creation and the cultivation of essential skills.

Similarly, the future health of the South Australian economy can be supported through a focus on new forms of construction, the repurposing of the Economic Development Board into a combined Productivity and Infrastructure Commission, and the consolidation of licensing and prequalification to deliver smarter and more efficient consumer protection and business savings.
