Gutless decision on minimum wage

National has raised the minimum wage by $0.50.

Why?

This is a gutless decision that is simply pricing more useless twats out of the market. Quite simply there are a lot of people who are barely worth $6.00 per hour and will remain permanently indigent with an artificial floor on their worth to an employer.

Labour of course are aghast that it isn’t enough, but as Cactus Kate pointed out at Red Alert just the other David “Blue Suit” Cunliffe was carping that $20.00 wasn’t enough for an office delivery person, about as unskilled as you can get for a job.

Labour campaigned for $15.00 per hour for the minimum wage, what is the bet that if National had caved and done that they would then be whining for $20.00 per hour.Labour party

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
