Wll another good news report from the bowels of the National-Maori-ACT coalition and its media lap dogs: unemployment drops to 6.4%.
Of course, as I've said before, there actually isn't an unemployment problem in Aotearoa/NZ, there is a racism problem.
For Maori, the rate for the September quarter was 16.2%, compared with just 4.3% for what is still anachronistically called the 'European' sector. (I'm sure a lot of Euro nations would love to have 4.3% unemployment!).
Anyways, its bad people, very bad...Maori youth unemployment of over 30% (Which means over 60% in some regions), and an environment of worsening working conditions (my employer is offering 1.8% from January next year, with expected inflation of 4.8% next year.
