Unemployment in Casey remains higher than both the state and national average which remains at 5.7%.
“Since the 2014 State election, Casey now has 1,930 more unemployed people directly attributed to a Andrews Labor Government that continues to destroy manufacturing and local jobs,” Ms Peulich said.
“Families in the City of Casey have been left reeling from such economic losses.”
Cranbourne East was hit particularly hard with a net loss of 286 jobs since the 2014 State Election, followed closely by Cranbourne North with 237 and Cranbourne with 212.
