So the pressure is building for National to get specific about it’s plans for fighting the recession. Therese Arseneau complained on Q+A today that Key has “no action plan”. Even Phil O’Reilly from Business New Zealand seemed to agree there wasn’t a clear plan.
After all the money spent on National’s ‘Jobs Summit’ the extent of what we’ve seen so far is a half-baked idea for a cycleway and a nine day fortnight proposal that leaves many workers further out of pocket.
And it looks like workers aren’t the only ones with reservations about the scheme. Under questioning from Espiner Key has revealed that so far only “one or two” companies have expressed an interest.
A scheme with no takers and a cycleway. That’s a pretty small rolling maul.
