Will Labour be forced to do the same here?

Brisbane Times

Contrast Gillard’s government with the Labour party here. Gillard is slashing state sector jobs, yet Labour in new Zealand thinks every state sector job is sacred:

MORE than 1500 federal public servants are set to lose their job, as the Gillard government prepares to release a tough budget in May that could trigger even greater job losses in the bureaucracy.

Most of the initial 1500 jobs expected to be shed will be based in Canberra, and are a result of a government attempt to save about $500 million on public servants. But even more jobs could now be cut as a result of next month’s budget, in which the government will pare back its expenditure to try to deliver a surplus. Public sector unions yesterday warned that cuts that went too deep would ultimately hurt the economy.

Labour are dreaming if they think they can come to power in 2014 and continue to grow a bloated public sector.
