This must be the productivity Liar-bour talks about

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Now don’t get me wrong, I am all for automation of mundane repetitive tasks.

Machines don’t need tea breaks, lunch breaks, four weeks holidays, paid parental leave, allowances for this and allowances for that, OSH regulations, Unions, Tangi leave……….

So I read with amusement the article in the Herald this morning that 650 mail sorters are to lose their jobs.

I bet they never dreamed that their Union supported and funded party, Liar-bour meant for them to lose their jobs when Clark exhorted New Zealanders to increase productivity.
