Preview of National’s welfare policy

The NZ Herald and Dom Post preview National’s policy which will be released today. Key aspects so far:

  • recepients whose youngest child is six or older spend at least 15 hours a week working, training or looking for work
  • Allow beneficiaries to earn $100 a week before their abate – an increase $1,000 a year.

Both seem pretty sensible to me. Will be interesting to see the full policy.
