The EFA biters bit, and golden parachutes

  • April 24th, 2008

Labour’s suffering under the EFA is only just beginning.

But a friend reminds me that stupid people (and stupid countries) have an unending capacity to say “gotcha” as they spear themselves in the knee.

Labour came to power in 1999 vowing to end the disgraceful parade of  sackings where even people well deserving of the boot jumped with golden parachutes worth many times more than ordinary people could earn in years.

Then they passed Margaret Wilson’s stupid Employment Relations Act, turning down the chance to adopt Australian law’s salary cap on unfair dismissal claims.

I’m sure if we could get the information we’d find that Labour has enriched more duds per year than ever happened under National.
