MAS­TER BUILDERS WA’S FIVE KEY BUD­GET MES­SAGES

Pinjarra Murray Times - - RESIDENTIAL -

■ WA’s build­ing in­dus­try will con­tinue to strug­gle un­less the State Govern­ment re­tains the $10,000 FHOG in the next bud­get. ■ More than 20 per cent of lo­cal builders will be pushed to the wall if the

FHOG is abol­ished. ■ Jobs for trades and ap­pren­tices will de­cline as work in the first-home

buyer sec­tor dries up. ■ The next gen­er­a­tion of first-home own­ers will not be able to en­ter the hous­ing mar­ket with­out FHOG. Re­mov­ing it ef­fec­tively kills the Great Aus­tralian Dream. ■ This dire sit­u­a­tion will be com­pounded in re­gional WA, which is al­ready

strug­gling.
