Labour's job search allowance
Helen Clark said Labours job search allowance for redundant and laid off workers is fair, applied to everyone and was simple to administer. It either won't be fair, it will be hard to administer, or it will not apply to everyone. It can't be all three.
So I don't believe her. I`ve looked into it. It is going to be interesting to administer as some people may be paid twice by the state if the policy applies to all laid off and redundant workers who have worked for five years. Tomorrow I`ll post the details of how it can happen.
