From Ruth Dyson’s press release:

The latest Household Labour Force Survey quarterly results from Statistics NZ confirm the Labour-led government’s employment policies and responsible economic management, says Social Development and Employment Minister Ruth Dyson.

“The record low level of unemployment of 3.5 per cent is the lowest rate since the Survey began.”

    Congratulations to Michael Cullen. To some extend this reflects a worlwide trend, but I think he also deserves credit for his economic management, and in particular some Keynesism (how the hell do you spell that) when it was needed.

    I think Working for Families also has played a role here, although I remain concerned about other negative aspects of that particular package.

    Nonetheless, good job.
