ERA Means Unemployment For Youth
Youth group Prebble's Rebels has expressed dismay that the
Employment Relations Bill has been passed into law, and
warns that it will result in higher unemployment, especially
for young people, Maori and women.
"The new Employment
Relations Act discourages people from setting up a business
and employing their fellow New Zealanders. As always with
anti-employment policies, the groups hit hardest will be
youth and minorities" said Rebel President, Clint
"The Act makes it harder for businesses to offer
young people their first job, and for youth to gain
all-important job experience. Similarly, the unemployed
will find it harder to get back into the workforce."
Heine said that if the government was serious about stopping
the brain drain they would be passing law that encourages
growth and employment, instead of undermining it.

It is increasingly clear that the primary driver of this crisis is the limiting and infectious worldview around land and resource use so central to the global capitalist system. To fully understand the biodiversity crisis and explore what comes next, it is necessary to address this mind-virus at the heart of our modern civilisation – the dominion worldview. More>>
