Better jobs and higher wages in Reserve Bank changes
Better jobs and higher wages in Reserve Bank
What really matters to New Zealanders' is a
strong economy that provides secure work and good wages,
says Labour’s Finance spokesperson David Parker.
Tuesday Labour will detail its changes to the Reserve Bank
Act. These changes will help create jobs and take pressure
off interest rates.
“For forty years New Zealand has not
exported enough to cover the costs of our imports and
“Our Reserve Bank changes, combined with our
wider Economic Upgrade, will help New Zealanders by creating
better jobs that pay higher wages for Kiwis by helping our
exporters compete overseas.
“Labour’s changes will
work with our Economic Upgrade focussing on investment,
innovation and industry policies.
“Alongside a capital
gains tax, our KiwiBuild housing policy, universal KiwiSaver
and reduced costs to businesses through NZ Power, Labour is
offering an alternative that will help Kiwi families and
ensure our economy can create better jobs and higher
wages,” says David

For a while in June, the top two singles on the US Billboard charts featured Iggy Azalea, an Australian model turned hip hop performer. To some, this may seem like just the latest chapter in a long saga of whites ripping off black culture, while enriching themselves in the process. Obviously, there’s some truth in the stereotype. Yet it can also obscure the positive collaborations – in jazz, soul music and hip hop – between musicians who treated each other as creative equals, race regardless. More>>
Satire: Carry On Captaining
Oh hello. Scanner Technician Davis. To what do I owe the pleasure?
You think we’re what?
Oh, pish. This vessel has been travelling along smoothly for generations – particularly smoothly in the last few years though I say so myself – and I happen to know we have never once been hit by an asteroid... More>>
