23,000 unemployed under National

The latest labour market statistics are out, showing another small drop in unemployment. It is now the lowest it has ever been under National - but there are still 23,000 more unemployed than when they took office.

And this is apparently as good as they can do. Nine long years, and they still have 23,000 more people abandoned to the market and left in poverty. Kiwis deserve a government which can do better than that. Fortunately, we'll get a chance to elect one next month.
