Cash-strapped Labour’s latest fundraising drive is the sale of Paid Parental Leave tee-shirts at $25 a pop.
Perhaps they can put that money towards paying for the policy, which Labour itself estimated to cost $150m.
Thankfully for Labour, there’s now bound to be a stampede of people wanting the shirts, given Sue Moroney’s modelling efforts…
I’m not sure this version of the shirt is a winner though…telling us that Labour plans to borrow the $150 million. Great messaging for Labour’s policy. One shirt says we can’t afford it and the other says we need to borrow millions to fund it…way to go Labour.
UPDATE: Some of you haven’t grasped that the shirts have added truthiness statements at the bottom.
