As RTT_Rules said it will probably end up being more than a hundred direct jobs - it's an incredibly large undertaking.The cynic in me says the LNP won't do anything about 'jobz 'n growf' in Queensland anyway.The unfortunate reality of the Adani mine is that if it does proceed, there will be a short term jobs bonanza but once operational a very different story. The whole site will be automated and one report I saw stated there would only be 100 direct jobs. Of course there will be indirect employment for suppliers, contractors and train crews to the port. That fact doesn't seem to be appreciated in the area. And the environmental consequences appear subservient to the electoral reality as demonstrated at the election.
Unemployment, particularly youth unemployment, is really pretty high in regional QLD - in Townsville and Rockhampton the rate gets towards ten percent. It's a national disgrace really, no wonder Queenslanders are angry at Canberra and particularly angry at the Greens for telling them they were wrong for wanting a jobs-generating coal mine. People living those cities and towns don't want to see their kids on drugs or suicidal because they have no job - in that respect Adani represented hope that something would come along to employ those people.
But the reality is the LNP don't care and will ignore them. And if you're unemployed then it's probably your fault anyway...
Weeks after the election I think the ALP and the Greens are still stunned and/or clueless about what just happened. It's about jobs - the same reason why Trump won the traditional Democrat working class areas in the 2016 election. The Labor Party were behaving like they could be all things to all people and they forgot that they're supposed to be representing the people who live a hand-to-mouth existence or the people who can't find work. Instead they forgot all about them.
You live in Gippsland don't you - you should understand yourself what it's about. Generational unemployment, kids who grow up without any hope of finding decent jobs unless they leave the place - otherwise they end up on crystal meth, alcoholics or contemplating suicide. There was absolutely no plan to help these people; not that the LNP are much better. Youth unemployment in places like Townsville and Rockhampton is around the 20 percent mark and adult unemployment not much less. These people are crying out for jobs and the last thing they wanted was Bob Brown and his well meaning idiots driving up there telling them they should forgo Adani for the sake of the planet.
Which is fine and dandy when you're on a parliamentary pension for the rest of your life.
