Green co-leader Metiria Turei has criticised Social Development Minister Paula Bennett for unfairly targeting women and beneficiaries.
The Minister isn’t unfairly targeting anyone. She knows the difference between a hand-up which helps people become independent and hand-outs which entrench dependence and has developed policies to help those who need it most.
What’s unfair about fostering independence?
Helping people who are able to stand on their own two feet to do so by giving them the skills and incentives to do so is better for them and society.
Fostering a culture of dependence which is what the left loves to do is economic and social sabotage.
