AROUND 500 people became unemployed in the north last month, as the region’s unemployment figures once again climbed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
THE Gawler region’s unemployment rate has jumped in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but local social support charities fear the worst of the virus’ impact is on the horizon.
THE Gawler region will find out tomorrow if its high unemployment rate will continue to rise faster than the rest of the state, after new statistics revealed yesterday South Australia has the highest jobless rate in Australia.
SOUTH Australia’s unemployment rate has plunged by a full percentage point, with local unemployment statistics, to be released tomorrow, also expected to show improvement.
RISING unemployment in the Adelaide-North region, including Gawler, is being matched by record numbers of jobs being created, according to one Liberal minister.
UNEMPLOYMENT rates in Adelaide’s north rose by 0.2 per cent in August, slightly less than the 0.4 per cent increase seen across South Australia collectively.
SOUTH Australia’s nation-topping unemployment rate of 7.3 per cent has been garnering statewide attention since being revealed last week, but the figure in Adelaide’s north – including Gawler – is still higher.
THE St Vincent de Paul Gawler conference has seen a sharp uptake in its services in the past three months, correlating with a spike in South Australia’s unemployment rate.
