The Nats want to extend the new entrants wage from 200hrs/3 months to 6 months. Won’t create jobs. Most businesses don’t bother with the new entrants wage anyway. word is, though, that the NE wage is a red herring. The guts of the policy will be a broad-spectrum on the rights of workers to organise and bargain designed to drive down wages.
Update: Irish has the details. It’s a kick in the teeth for young workers, the NE will start again if they change jobs. It’ll make it harder for beneficiaries to go into work by putting them on NE. And it’ll give employers the power to refuse to negotiate with your union, the only people getting workers wage rises these days.
