Speaking ahead of the latest unemployment rate update, which was expected to drop, Luxon told Morning Report having more people in jobs was a good thing.
Unemployment estimates had ranged between 2.8 percent and 3.1 percent from the current record low of 3.2 percent, with one measure of wages rising at an annual rate of more than 5.5 percent.
“The bottom line here is that anyone in a job is a good thing, that’s the pathway to dignity. You’re not going to get rich sitting on welfare and being confined to welfare all your life.”
He said there were huge job shortages as a result of a constrained economy and constrained immigration.
“I think what’s more disturbing … is you’ve got 50,000 more people on a Job Seeker benefit, that’s a short-term benefit to accompany, help people through a job transition.”
Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well- warmed, and well-fed.
What is he doing?
This country is still reeling from the impact of Covid and he’s bashing beneficiaries?
Where does a 7 property owning Hawaiian mansion holidaying CEO get off shitting on poor people in such desperate times?
We are handing out over 100 000 food grants a month with Food Banks spiking 500% and he’s bitching about the lowest unemployment rate in forever?
It’s like he can’t help but bully anyone economically weaker than himself.
Does he think this is shits ands giggles for everyone? Right now a vast chunk of our brothers and sisters in this country, regardless of who they vote for, are doing it bloody hard, and only someone really insulted from that reality like he is would say this sort of crap!
I thought that ‘bottom feeder’ comment was a slip up, a mistake, a poorly worded brain fat, but the more I see of Luxon, the more I see a preening vanity in his success, a naked self aggrandisement that sees his wealth as a direct blessing from Jesus making it a sin to be humble.
I don’t like his policies.
I don’t like the way he pushes around the poor.
I don’t like the constant and embarrassing u-turns.
I don’t like him!
Jacinda will beat the Jesus H Christ out of him in the debates and you all know it. He has a huge gleaming glass jaw and you can all see it.
He will get knocked out in the first round.
Remember, Luxon was the negotiated leader, not the most talented. He became Leader after Collins made her hate pack vote for him after she ratfucked Simon Bridges.
The question is when will Nicola Willis attempt a move against Luxon.
Before the election or after it?
