Everyone has heard how good the mining industry is for Queensland but is this actually the case for industries other than mining, that employ the vast majority of Queenslanders?
Queensland is currently experiencing a massive and unprecedented expansion of coal and gas mining. While this will certainly create some jobs in mining, there is no doubt that it will destroy existing jobs in tourism, education and agriculture, and hurt manufacturing across Queensland.
Join us as we hear from a panel of experts who discuss the consequences of the mining boom for the 99 per cent of Queenslanders who don’t work in mining.
When: Tuesday March 20th, 6-7.30 pm
Where: Bleeding heart Gallery, 166 Anne St Brisbane.
Our panel includes:
- Daniel Gschwind, CEO, Queensland Tourism Industry Council
- Richard Denniss, Executive Director, The Australia Institute
- Drew Wagner, Senior Policy Officer, Agforce
This is a free public forum to discuss the most important issue impacting the Queensland economy.
