SA records lowest unemployment rate

Thursday 20 January, 2022

For the first time since monthly ABS records began, we’ve recorded our lowest unemployment rate of 3.9 per cent.

I acknowledge that Omicron has presented challenges for some businesses and industries, but we are doing everything we can to support them and ensure they bounce back.

Today's data shows that our Economic Recovery Plan is putting SA in a strong position, and we will keep working to maintain and build on this momentum.
