It is important for the Right to be in poverty denial and it is central to that poverty denial that the myth of a hands off Government creating the environment for job creation is maintained.
Sadly the maintenance of that myth took another hit today with the release of stagnant unemployment figures that don’t show everyone is benefiting from National’s ‘Brighter Future’.
With unemployment rate for 20-24year old up 2.2%, 20% of 15-19year olds unemployed & Maori unemployment climbing to 13.2%, it looks like the rockstar economy is out of drugs.
Meanwhile Paula Bennett effectively brainfarts this out as a jobs policy…
Dear dirty filthy bludgers,
For just $3000, you too could be homeless in an earthquake zone!
love Paula Bennett & The National Party
…bribing beneficiaries into a natural disaster might pass as social policy at Slytherin House, it should raise eyebrows in a functioning democracy.
