Major Accomplishment

Startling Growth

David Farrar writes in Kiwiblog that since Labour/NZ First/Greens took control of the government and country there are:

  • 37,000 more people on welfare
  • A 22% increase in those on a jobseeker benefit
  • 16,000 more people who have been on a benefit for over a year
  • A 30% increase in Maori and Pasifka jobseeker benefit levels
  • 15,000 more children living in a benefit dependent household

It looks like going on the welfare rolls is the fastest growth industry in New Zealand.  Doubtless the government sees this as a huge accomplishment.
