Adani Mining Jobs in Queensland are hot property
With the construction phase of Adani’as Carmichael mine quickly approaching, local North Queensland councils are going into overdrive competing for investment opportunities.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker has acknowledged this process, but is more interested in ensuring local mine workers do not miss out on Carmichael mine jobs, giving people genuine choice on where they live and work.
This comes as Townsville and Rockhampton councils go head to head for a greater stake of the FIFO market generated out of the development of Adani`s mine, rail and port project.
Mrs Baker acknowledges that FIFO will always be a part of the equation for this project, with up to 10,000 jobs being created, however, she wants to ensure local workers are not locked out of local jobs.
