Pictures tell the story … Cairns Economy in Dire Straits!!!
The Cairns economy remains in dire straits, despite misinformation spread by the LNP.
The city is still full of empty shops, as is DFO, and many families are still struggling with their mortgages and rent.
You don’t have to be a ‘brain surgeon’ to work out those who lost their jobs as a result of LNP sackings stopped spending discretionary income. The pain has clearly flowed through to local business as the vicious cycle of Campbell Newman’s austerity measures takes hold.
