If only they’d do the work

Winston Peters wants to get the unemployed to help with the building of homes in struggling regions.

I can’t wait for the unions to dump all over that policy, and I can’t wait for Labour to try and nix the solution.

NZ First leader Winston Peters wants to use unemployed people to fix up dilapidated houses in struggling regions.

In a speech in Rotorua today, Mr Peters said his party had long had a community wage policy to get unemployed people into work.

“It is based on a combination of the unemployment benefit and the minimum wage, and amounts to a subsidy for paid work in any region,” he said.

Mr Peters said when full-time jobs did not exist local community leaders could name projects that would be started if money was made available.

Under the policy, an individual or a group of people could be working for a number of employers doing specific jobs.

On Unemployed and Mandates

? NZ Herald

Bob Jones talks about elections as mandates and?the?unemployed:

Defending the contentious asset sales policy, the Prime Minister argues he was open about his party’s intentions before the last election and thus has a mandate. The openness was commendable but not so his assumption. His party would still have won if it had also proposed publicly hanging the unemployed, which, mind you, when one quietly considers it, does have some merit.

After all, public hangings were immensely popular entertainments in Britain, drawing enormous crowds and in the process creating much happiness and gainful work, (hangmen for example) plus considerable food and beverage, manufacturing and purveying employment. The sole shortcoming with the public hanging industry though was its brevity.

This was resolved by introducing multiple successive hangings, thereby ensuring a decent day’s family outing and a corresponding greater demand for food and drinks. Learning from this, boxing promoters of the day introduced preliminary bouts; these multiple hangings and preliminary fights initiatives marking yet another giant stride forward in the march of civilisation.

But what does all of this prove? Well for starters, that reading newspapers is educational, as I’ll bet you didn’t know that before.

I can hear the howls of outrage from people like Sue Bradford and Martyn Bradbury from here.
