An answer to a written question from National Regional Development spokesperson Chris Bishop reveals 1922 people are employed by PGF projects – and of that, just 616 are full-time jobs.
So far, $297.4 million has been spent so far on PGF projects. That’s $484,000 per full-time job, excluding those part-time jobs.
600 FT jobs created over two years by the PGF for $300 million. Pitiful.
By comparison in 2016/17 there were 137,000 new jobs created which was 66 new jobs every working hour.
So Shane Jones has spent $300 million over two years and created what was basically one day of job growth under National!
