Outgoing MP Trevor Mallard hosted a meeting in Hutt South for their next MP, Holly Walker. He looks so enthusiastic about it all too:
The meeting was on behalf of Young Labour and they were campaigning for what they call Tertiary Fares…or cheap public transport fared for young bludgers.
Now colour me surprised. I thought Labour passed a law removing the differential wage rates for youth. Further they will have spent all day in parliament yesterday opposing National new Youth Minimum Wage.
Surely if it is discriminatory to oppose youth wages then it is likewise discriminatory to subsidise their public transport fares.
Can’t have it both ways Trev.
