Young women are storming into Australia's workforce adding 60,000 jobs since this time last year and leaving their male counterparts in their wake.
Women aged 15-24 have more than doubled young males' performance in the job market, beating men by more than 3 per cent on the employment to population ratio and unemployment despite their participation rate being effectively equal.
Young women's unemployment rate is now just 9.4 per cent compared with 13.3 per cent for men.
Overall, since 2015, youth unemployment has dropped from 13.1 per cent to 11.3 per cent, its lowest level since 2012, after an extra 95,200 young people got a job in the past year, the best result since 1989.
"That was the year Taylor Swift was born," said Treasurer Scott Morrison.
"It has been 30 years since we have seen jobs figures for young people as good as what we have seen in this last financial year, and I reckon that would be something for [US pop star] Taylor Swift to sing about."
Teenagers also got an employment boost this year after 58,000 jobs were added for those born between 2003 and 1999.
Labor described the figures as misleading, warning the youth employment figures masked the more insidious issue of underemployment, where workers want more hours but can not get them.
Full-time work for the cohort increased by 16,000 since June 2017, but most of the gains were part-time for younger workers - adding 78,000 jobs. Women were the biggest young part-time workers with 627,000 of them compared to 445,000 males.
Labor's employment spokesman Brendan O'Connor blamed temporary visa holders, international students and working holiday makers for keeping underemployment close to its peak at 8.5 per cent.
Both Labor and the Coalition have been ramping up their immigration rhetoric as campaigns in five federal byelections move toward their final week.
"We have people who are here on student visas that too often are not here primarily to study," said Mr O'Connor.
"We have people here on working holiday visas who are not here to take a holiday and the government should be looking at that."
The Australian Bureau of Statistics defines a person as employed if they work one or more hour a week. International students are legally limited to 20 hours of employment per week, restricting their impact on the overall labour market.
The Productivity Commission called for a public inquiry into the impacts of international education on Australia’s labour force in 2016 after it found it was is impossible to accurately decide if foreign students push locals out of jobs. No such inquiry has ever eventuated.
Across the states, NSW has continued to drive Australia's job bonanza creating half the jobs in the country in the past year and delivering Australia its lowest unemployment rate since 2013.
An extra 51,000 jobs smashed market expectations, tripling the predictions of forecaster. It helped the unemployment rate stay steady at 5.4 per cent due to a lift in participation.
"There are two real heroes, the businesses that create jobs and the people who went out there seeking them and got those jobs," said Mr Morrison.
Victoria was the only state to increase its unemployment rate from 5.5 to 5.6 per cent in seasonally adjusted terms after it lost 6600 jobs in June following a 22,100 strong performance in May.
Up to 80 per cent of roles created were full time, a sharp contrast from last month's result which saw part-time employment as the major job driver.
Economists and policymakers have been sweating on the data, hoping continued record job creation eventually kicks stagnant wages into gear.
But the under-utilisation rate, a combination of unemployment and workers who would like more hours but are not getting them, remains near its peak of 13.8 per cent.
The result signals much-needed labour tightness - which would encourage employers to bid up wages - might still be a way off.
The market expects the Reserve Bank to keep interest rates on hold at their record low of 1.5 per cent until they start showing some signs of life.
