Labour has a penchant for employment policy which treats all employers as if they are like the minority of bad ones.
My theory that that’s because they judge others by their own low standards has been strengthened by another example:
Mr Goff today put pressure on Mr Key, saying he should make Mrs Wong front-up and explain, or sack her from National’s caucus.
Kiwiblog covers the hypocrisy of this in the wake of the way Labour has acted over misdeeds in its own caucus.
But there is more hypocrisy – Labour is the party which keeps telling us it’s the one which stands up for workers’ rights, among which is the right to fair process.
Yet here’s the leader calling for someone to be thrown out of caucus before the process is completed.
Imagine how he’d react if an employer tried to do that with a worker.
And oh how ironic that this call was made when employment law reforms, including a 90 day trial period for all new employees, are being opposed so strongly by Labour.
