Not since 1974 have we seen a national rate lower however the Western Australian unemployment rate actually rose by .3 to 3.4%. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, June produced more overall persons employed, increased the number of full time employment with the underemployment, persons wanting more work, rose slightly above the previous month.

The thing I appreciate the most about Wood Recruitment is they are very responsive to other NPA Members and myself. I have known Scott for over 10 years and he is a straightforward guy that will go the extra mile to help if he can.
