And so it comes to pass. The first law National ram through as part of their victory march are new anti worker laws they pretend will generate ‘flexibility’.
The new law denigrate the unions ability to protect workers and provide the ability to remove tea breaks for ‘flexibility’ purposes despite a recent report that shows NZ is one of the easiest places to do business.
All this law will do is weaken Unions which in turn will weaken worker rights which in turn will push wages down, not up.
The nation of the egalitarian dream has been mutilated by 30years of neoliberalism into an inequality nightmare. The sick joke of the 40 hour working week tastes even more bitter in the week we celebrated Labour Day.
This law is nothing more than triumphalism by National, it is needles ideological knife twisting and NZers voted for it.
