It’s not just the sugar market, of course.
In recent weeks, the Australian Government has announced its plans to increase the number of sugar inspectors from 30 to 120, and the number that are paid by the sugar industry will double from 10 to 30.
In recent weeks it’s been revealed that a major supermarket chain, Sainsbury’s, has decided to axe its local sugar beet processing operations, and has given up plans to build a new sugar beet refinery in the Kimberley region.
This is a significant blow to Australia’s sugar industry, which is one of the largest producers of cane sugar in the world.
The decline in sugar prices has made the industry’s income more precarious.
And as we reported last week, the sugar crisis has had a significant impact on the Australian honey industry.
According to research conducted by Australian honey producer, the Sainsburys, the global slump in sugar cane prices is the result of a decline in global demand for Australian sugar.
But the problems for the Australian sugar industry are far more complex.
According to research from the Australian Sugar Industry Association, the honey industry is a highly-regulated industry that is largely reliant on a large, highly-paid workforce.
It has a significant and highly-skilled workforce, and employs people in a number of areas.
The Australian Sugar industry has a workforce of over 300,000 people and has an average annual turnover of more than $100 million.
The sugar industry has been hit hard by the global financial crisis, and it has lost hundreds of thousands of jobs since it first took over in the 1980s.
In the last three years, there has been a sharp increase in unemployment in Australia, with the number in work for a month now reaching over 4,500.
The number of Australians in the labour force has been dropping steadily for the past two years, and is currently below the national average of around 5,400.
But according to a report released this week by the Australian Institute of Agricultural and Food Technology, the industry is also struggling to find skilled workers, with only 1.6 per cent of the workforce employed in agriculture occupations.
And while the workforce is underfunded, many of the workers have a much lower level of education than other sectors.
A recent study by the Productivity Commission found that in Australia there are currently around 30,000 workers in the sugar and bakery industries who are less than 20 years old.
That number is expected to grow to around 35,000 by 2020.
Despite this, the Sugar Industry Australian Federation has said that the sugar sector has seen an increase in labour market turnover since the global economic crisis.
The federation’s president, Andrew Langford, said: “The situation has been improving.
We have seen a reduction in unemployment and we’ve seen a increase in the number on the dole, and we have seen the number who are actively looking for work increase.”
The sugar sector is also looking to expand overseas, with a growing number of Australian companies wanting to expand into emerging markets such as China and India.
It is expected that the industry will see an increase of more 10,000 jobs in 2018.
As a result of the global downturn, many industries are going through a period of rapid turnover.
For the past five years, the number one cause of job losses in Australia has been the impact of the world food price drop.
In January 2018, Australia’s unemployment rate hit a record high of 11.6 percent.
According of the ABS, more than 60 per cent (16,000) of those job losses were due to global financial turmoil.
While this is a huge problem, the impact on Australian employment is less severe.
According for the last year, Australia has seen a decrease of 5,000 employment, and this is expected for the next 12 months.
According for the latest ABS figures, only 3.5 per cent were unemployed at the end of June, and 2.7 per cent have been laid off in the past 12 months, with another 7.4 per cent not in the market for work.
