45,000 out of work under National

The latest Household Labour Force Survey was released today, showing a drop in unemployment to 6.2%. But there are still 150,000 out of work - 45,000 more than when National took office - and there are still 94,000 more people classified as "not in the labour force", who have given up even looking for work.

National thinks this is a success. If this is "success", I would hate to see what failure looks like.
