1,000 jobs to be created due to one co-ordinator!

Shane Jones has boasted about how the PGF will create 10,000 jobs. We now know that in fact it has been less than 100, and the 10,000 is the total of what the applicants claim will happen if they get given money.

One of the more ludicrous examples of this is the claim that by spending $99,000 on a Kiwifruit Labour Coordinator in the Bay of Plenty, this will create 1,000 extra jobs.

I think the PGF competes with Kiwibuild for the greatest gap between promises and reality.
