Trevor Mallard is acting like a dickhead again, which is nothing new, really
Trevor Mallard is scaremongering by warning people not to look for jobs with firms that hire fewer than 20 people (which is most firms) because they will only be fired before their 90-day probation period us up.The "fire at will" bill (as some have called it) comes into force today.
Now that' the sort of comment you'd expect from The Standard, not a former Cabinet Minister who is now the Opposition spokesperson on labour, therefore speaking on behalf of the Opposition. Obviously Mallard can't name one employer that is likely to fire an employee because of the 90-day probation period and probably won't be able to name one that has done so in 90 days time, either.
What a dickhead.
