Labor welcomes the drop in unemployment announced today.

It is disappointing that the drop does not extend to youth unemployment, which has increased to 22.6 per cent.

The challenge for the Howard Government is to sustain the current trend and ensure that fewer Australians, especially young people, are out of work.
