Jobs, jobs, everywhere – but not a one for me? (Part Toru)


“The driving goal of my Government is to build a more competitive and internationally-focused economy with less debt, more jobs and higher incomes.” – 21 December 2011


So John, how’s that “More Real Jobs” campaign pledge working out for you?

Tell us more about these “Real Jobs” and how we’re going to get “More” of them?


Full story


Plus on top of that,

Latest redundancies;

And tell us, John, how will drug testing unemployed and State control over solo-mother’s (but never solo-dads)  birth control, give us “More Real Jobs“?

Surely, John, your plans for drug testing and birth control for welfare recipients  is not a cunning diversionary tactic from your Party strategists (paid out of our taxes) to deflect public attention from your total inability to generate “More Real Jobs“?!

You wouldn’t stoop to such a cheap trick, would you, John?

Surely not?

    When John K says “real” jobs, is that opposed to “pretend” jobs?

      More like his “Ghost jobs” that we can’t touch, Allyson? 😀

    I’d better not get a job someone with kids to feed might miss out.

    I know for a fact that John is stupid, I’m not sure if he speaks for himself, I do know he doesn’t speak for me, it’s possible that there is a ventriloquist behind the scenes doing all the talking, so i can’t be certain that he is dumb. He might be deaf or he only hears what he wants to hear.

    My job has been cut and I’m applying for jobs in Wellington. I’ve been lucky enough to get a couple of interviews but as yet no success. Other friends looking for work tell me there are on average 70 to 80 applicants for every single job. You do the numbers. If it wasn’t for the thousands heading for Australia, unemployment rates would be skyrocketing.

    • 10 July 2012 at 10:25 pm

      I’ve heard pretty much the same from others, Kay; dozens, if not hundreds applying for one or two vacancies. And not getting any easier.

      In the meantime, while “Rome” burns, Caesar Key fiddles with birth control and drug testing… As if to imply that everyone looking for a job is a dope-fiend droppingf babies all over the place?!?!

      I wish you success, Kay. All the best.

    You have my sympathies Kay! The last interview I had (maybe 10 days ago?) she told me she’d had 75 applications, and whittled them down to 10 she was interviewing (so I ought to feel good, right?) When I hadn’t heard owt I phoned, and she told me she’d just that day had the winner start, and the winner was ‘Leukaemia woman’! (That’s what I call her, a woman who’s been in remission for 2 months, with leukaemia.) The employer had chosen leukaemia woman in order to do something nice for her! I theorise that LW was the 11th candidate, someone the employer already knew.
    Lucky for LW, not so lucky for the rest of us. I don’t want to seem like a green meany, but my son worked at Ward 62 (haematology) at Auckland City Hospital. Almost everyone on Ward 62 had leukaemia, and every one of them was in and out of hospital for tests, chemo and radiotherapy. Somehow I feel that LW won’t work out as full time receptionist for a language school!
