I personally think that the unemployment rate will increase in WA over the next few months. I do not beleive that WA companies are getting very much work at all from the boom in the North West, most of the work appears to be going overseas. Many people are being employed up in the NW on the boom projects but not down here. We area a large WA heavy engineering company and although we are doing well none of our work is from the NW its all from Water Corp and Over East. Colin Barnetts commnets last week about lots of work opportunities is misguilded.
