The ABS has noted that "payroll jobs fell by 0.9% nationally in the fortnight to 5 June 2021, following a 0.4% rise in the previous fortnight. The latest fortnight of data partly overlapped with the first nine days of the lockdown in Victoria. Payroll jobs in the state fell by 2.1% over the fortnight. Almost every industry in Victoria saw a fall in payroll jobs during this period, with the largest falls seen in the Accommodation and food services, and Arts and recreation services industries (down 10.2% and 8.0%). Each lockdown sees falls in Accommodation and food services payroll jobs, reflecting the impact that restrictions have on this industry. While the fall in payroll jobs is generally greatest in the state or territory of the lockdown, restrictions that affect interstate travel may also contribute to falls in payroll jobs in the Accommodation and food services industry in other states and territories. Payroll jobs in the industry fell in almost every state and territory across the fortnight. The Northern Territory was the only state or territory with an increase (up 0.3%) in payroll jobs in the industry over the fortnight, and the only state or territory where payroll jobs in the industry were above pre-pandemic levels."
