You will notice that it covers all states and most industries.

I would have to agree, I work for a small business owner less than 12 employees - his outlook is that things are grim in the near term. Business has certainly dropped off since November quite noticably. Personally i believe that a % is due to the negative press, business owners are awaqiting to see what actually transpires. The medium term for what I do is quite optomistic so long as mining drives the WA economy. With that I'll always be employed.

 

Before that I also thik from my perspective the economy in WA will tighten and jobs will go, just give it another three months before it kicks in.
