The Nationals Federal Member for Cowper and Assistant Minister for Employment, Luke Hartsuyker, is a bit of a sleight-of-hand magician.
Voilà! In The Coffs Coast Advocate he creates around 300 jobs on 11 September 2013:
"I've already spoken to Joe Hockey about building on the Centrelink Call Centre expansion to bring another government office to the city,"....
Hey presto! In The Canberra Times he takes jobs away again on 18 September:
More than 800 of the operators will go on September 27, according to the Community and Public Sector Union, when their contracts with the department [Centrelink] run out, and another 400 will leave after a three-month extension to their contracts runs out at the end of December.
