Unemployment at 4.6% - more than 100,000 out of work but just 30,000 on the dole
Unemployment has risen to a five year high. But the number of people employed increased by 21,000, driven by males in part time employment. I wonder how many of them get the abated dole as well.
I also wonder how many more are not eligible for the dole because either their partner works, or is on ACC, or both partners work part time and are thus ineligible for the dole, given that just 30,000 get the dole.
