Quote of the day:
To sit back and accept that the system is not failing, to be in my position and do nothing about it, to not take my own experiences (and I am not ashamed of my past on a benefit) and use them to make positive change for beneficiaries… now that is unacceptable. I accept that people can be scared of change, but I’m going to keep backing people into more than a lifetime on welfare. Paula Bennett
The Minister of Social Development is backing beneficiaries to help them have a better life in employment than they, and their families could have on benefits.
