90 day right to sack law will cost 80 000 jobs per year
Giving the boss the right to sack will kill off anyone leaving their job for a new job because in an unemployment environment as hostile as the current one and with such an uncertain global economic outlook, no one is going to risk what they currently have for a position they may get fired from for no reason whatsoever. Rat bosses will abuse the vulnerability caused by high unemployment and this right to sack can easily cross the floor and dance with it’s ugly cousin, exploitation. That the trial was able to sack one in 5 NZers and the number of new workers is 400 000 per year, then this scheme will actually sack 80 000 NZers per year.
But the really offensive part of the 90 day right to sack, is the fact that we have a merchant banker Prime Minister who is selling these erosions of workers rights as for the benefit of those very same workers.
Oh the audacity.
