Yeah I'd tend to agree with you on practically all of your argument Tracey except the part that ignores the increasing deficits since National took office....(after the 08 election). The Greek experiment is an advanced case of austerity measures which is pretty much what National have been trying to maintain for the last 4 and a half years...? Joe Keys govt has been raising the debt levels....so what was your point..?

When they said 177K jobs created.... they really meant just 7... Its a sad indictment of this govt's inept handling of the economy that jobs are in such short supply and kiwis are looking for jobs that haven't eventuated nor do they look likely to in big numbers... National has set out from the start to hammer NZ workers into lower wages and salaries and their jobs policies are farcical. The only reason unemployment figures aren't worse is the exodus of jobless kiwis offshore.

and in greece and other counries thereare no jobs and soon no benefits which will happen here if we dont pay off our debts and stop borrowing money and 200 or so people apply for most jobs in most cities that are in factories, cleaning etc so maybe its more about education?? and other things than raising benefits

This state of affairs simply shows that the present government has no clue about economics and job creation. They are good in spin, arrogance and in working primarily for the wealthy. I also blame the gullible voters who voted for this useless government.

These people all seem very genuine, but I can tell you the dairy industry is crying out for staff and cannot find them. It is very hard work no question, but you also get a house to live in, and a new lifestyle. Financially people are much better off than in town, so why not move into the rural sector ?

There are jobs out there but with no trade behind you and NZ experience it gets harder to get on the work line.
My husband waited months to finally find a job and he had a University degree and 12 years experience behind him.
Not that there wasn't any jobs but without NZ experience it can take 2 years before they will even consider.
Agencies can only offer free lance or temporary if you are lucky.
Anyone migrant that comes over I warn them of this unfortunate blitch here that nobody knows until they arrive.
God help any one like us that arrives here during Dec Jan/Feb time just nothing.
Even good responses from your own country from companies welcoming you turn the other cheek when you arrive.
Migration offices world wide need to be aware of this as I contacted ours to let them know the whole truth.
Wait long enough and have enough collateral then you can make it but otherwise a hopeless task.
These people seeking these jobs now even with forms will find that they won't even be considered if they don't have NZ experience.
It could also mean that we are having many too many migrants without work exp needed to be accepted so why are we accepting them times are hard for even those with jobs.

Yes Carlos, despite the *lazy bennie bludger* rhetoric that is constantly spouted by you and your ilk, jobs are very highly sought after.

there is no incentive to earn money in this country when rents are so excessive that no normal person could afford them without working for families and tax credits / accommodation supplements - so these people are frankly just as bad off working poor as they are on a benefit, plus there are costs of transport and childcare when you work. In order to create favourable 'market conditions' for National and their mates to make loads of money off Kiwi's the reality is there will be high employment. The reason Paula Bennette don't care is because she knows this, frankly her attitude (when she was a beneficiary herself) is appalling, who does she think she is!

Carlos = National-ACT supporter.
It'll take time for the reality of high unemployment to percolate into their brains.
For many Nat/ACT followers, it's easier to blame the unemployed and other beneficiaries as being "lazy" - rather than accept that we simply have a shortage of jobs.
Even Bennett is starting to understand this.
In which case, what is the point of National's welfare "reforms"?
This country needs economic growth and jobs and not useless prejudice.
