Unemployment rate rises in Australian state

Updated:2010-05-13 17:55:45

The unemployment rate in New South Wales (NSW) has surged to the highest level in four months after the state shed 10,000 jobs, data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed on Thursday.

The jobless rate rose to 5.8 percent in April from 5.5 percent in March.

It was the worst result since December when the rate was also 5. 8 percent.

Some 10,300 jobs were lost in the state, and the majority were amongst women.

NSW opposition treasury spokesman Mike Baird said the outcome for April reflected the state government's failed economic policies.

"There is no doubt NSW is continuing to go backwards under the Keneally Labor government," he said in a statement.

The NSW result was the second highest among the states and territories, trailing only Tasmania on 5.9 percent.

Nationally, the jobless rate was unchanged at 5.4 percent in April.
