Ever since John Key announced that the 90-day trial period for new employers would be extended to cover all businesses unions have been telling us that’s unfair.
They aren’t reflecting the views of most people:
ONE News asked voters whether they thought the 90-day trial law should be extended to cover all companies every time someone starts a new job. Sixty percent said yes, while just 36% said no. The remainder said they didn’t know, or were unsure.
What the unions fail to understand is that a trial period isn’t just for employers’ sakes.
It helps people get a job and it also helps existing workers.
Having new workers who don’t pull their weight or simply don’t fit in can be really hard on existing staff.
