Benefit numbers still way up from 2017

The latest benefit numbers show:

  • 41% more NZers on jobseeker support than in Sep 2017
  • 22% more NZers on sole parent support than in Sep 2017

That is over 60,000 more NZers on those benefits, despite officially being lower. Is it because there are basically no sanctions anymore if you don’t try and get a job?
