Lobbying on the training incentive allowance
Trudy Basire is a frequenter of the TradeMe message boards frequented by Natasha Fuller, who gets $715 as a beneficiary. Basire is leading the campaign to reinstate full access to the Training Incentive Allowance (TIA). Although Fuller is one Basire's Facebook friends, Fuller has "removed herself from public discussion" in the campaign according to this media release on the campaign website.
However it is good to see that Jennifer Johnston - the other beneficiary mentioned on this blog - has been constructive in her suggestions in discussions with the Minister. Such an approach can only lead to better outcomes.
Listen to her here on checkpoint . She has some good suggestions.
