National scream the new employment law reforms are 1970s Unionism the way Fox News called Obamacare socialism. The truth is that what the new Government are proposing are very weak measures in terms of worker protections.
It will allow for the Unions to extend some membership rights across all industries but attempting to sell that as some sort of return to Polish Shipyards is about as disingenuous as describing Trump as a human rights activist.
The fact that National and their big boss mates think something as mild as what Labour are suggesting is some sort of threat to entrepreneurship would be funny if they weren’t so hysterical about it.
Actually them being this hysterical is pretty funny too.
The new proposed employment law reforms are not what is driving business confidence down, that’s the spin, the truth of what is driving down the economy is the reality that National’s 9 years of empty growth is over and there is nothing to build on from that.
I’d call it a case of boy crying wolf but what Labour are proposing is more a kitten than any type of canine.
