Phil Goff has said he and Labour support Catherine Delahunty’s bill on pay equity. Except they don’t. It is pure window dressing.
Labour leader Phil Goff supports Green MP Catherine Delahunty’s bill aimed at achieving equal pay for men and women, even though his own party’s tactics would prevent it from progressing.
Every second sitting Wednesday the House considers local and private bills and members’ bills drawn from a ballot.
But members’ bills are all gathering dust at the moment as Labour has been trying to block the passage of Act MP Heather Roy’s Voluntary
Yes, Labour thinks forcing students to belong to a union is more important than pay equity.
Mr Goff said Labour would support Mrs Delahunty’s bill to a select committee stage, but had no intention to change tactics over voluntary student membership.
“We’ve got an opposition to a bill that’s being promoted by Act, and we’ll fight that one tooth and nail.”
Yep pure ideology shows that Labour likes protectionsim, unionism and bully tactics far more than pay equity for women.
When Labour says they support you I think it is safe to ignore what they are saying. Oh that’s right Labour supports MMP.
