Treasurer rejects JobKeeper extension for struggling tourism sector

  Treasurer rejects JobKeeper extension for struggling tourism sector Instead, the states should "put their hands in their pockets" and spend more to help businesses, he said. "Our federal economic support has delivered more than three times what the Palaszczuk government has committed to," Mr Frydenberg told Today."We'd welcome the states putting their hands in their pockets and spending a little bit more in their own states as part of the economic recovery but, of course, when it comes to the tourism sector, I recognise they've been doing it tough and will continue to monitor that situation very closely.

Many of these positions require training, certifications, licenses, apprenticeships and sometimes a college degree to qualify.

He warned unless some action is taken, increasingly more jobs will be lost, which will reduce economic activity in far north Queensland and make it very difficult to rebuild.
