MANUFACTURING MOVE: Labor plans to revitalise manufacturing, including in the railway carriage sector, if elected in March. Photo: Attila Csaszar

Parties clash over local jobs

A Labor plan to boost manufacturing in WA has put it at odds with the Barnett government just months from the state poll.

The Liberal and Labor parties are facing a real challenge as the March state election draws closer. The traditional promise of a fistful of dollars will no longer work – voters want to know where future jobs will come from.

And the party with the more credible policy could well emerge the winner, as Western Australia continues the painful transition from the resources construction stage (requiring thousands of temporary jobs) to the much-reduced permanent workforce of the production phase.
