In related news, I see Steven Joyce has met with Solid Energy and the Spring Creek miners. He’s got a solution: not a dollar to help the mine stay open. Instead, he says the workers could go work in Christchurch. No plan to help them get jobs there or create additional jobs there – just ‘go to Christchurch’. Yeah, Christchurch: that place that where there is not a single job for skilled miners, which has lost 32,000 jobs since the quakes began and which is still losing jobs.
