70,000 out of work under National

The Household Labour Force Survey is out, and unemployment has increased again, to a staggering 7.3%. There are now 175,000 people out of work - 70,000 more than when National took office.

We haven't seen unemployment numbers like this since last time National was in office, and it shows again the failure of their economic approach. "Leaving it to the market" means people out of work and lives ruined. Kiwis expect better than that from our government.
