The Government is turning a blind eye to the continuing stream of job losses as it talks up the economy, says New Zealand First.
Job openings for Pacific peoples remain low and the outlook for employment is dismal, says New Zealand First spokesperson for Pacific Island Affairs Le’aufa’amulia Asenati Lole-Taylor.
New Zealand First will always stand up for workers and businesses. The simple truth is that when people are in jobs, and businesses have plenty of work, we have a healthy economy. And that’s good for every Kiwi family.
Once again a New Zealand company has missed out on a major government project, says Rt Hon Winston Peters.
The Prime Minister wants the House to express its confidence in the National Government – well we don’t!
That plan outlined by the Prime Minister for 2014 brought to mind the word Hoover.
Predictably, the Prime Minister today gave a feel good speech implying that all is rosy and that the country is heading in the right direction, says New Zealand First.
Families are feeling the brunt of welfare reforms as parents struggle to provide for their children at the beginning of the school year says New Zealand First spokesperson for social policy Asenati Lole-Taylor.
The high New Zealand dollar is crippling our manufacturers and exporters. Most weeks, we read or hear stories of another business that has had to lay off staff or close up shop for good.
Rt Hon Winston Peters has appealed to all Members of Parliament to put aside their politics and vote to send his private members Reserve Bank Amendment Bill to a select committee for further consideration.
