Young people feel betrayed by New Zealand  National Government over zero-hour contracts



The youth network of the Public Service Association (PSA), New Zealand’s largest union, says young people feel betrayed by the Government who have entrenched unfair zero-hour contracts instead of keeping their promise to get rid of them.

Everybody deserves to have secure work that they can plan their life around,” said Caleb Gordon, co-convenor of the PSA Youth network”.

“The Government promised to ban zero-hour contracts, but instead they’ve proposed this law change which entrenches them”.

“Our young people have been totally let down by the Government’s U-turn on zero-hour contracts.

“Unreliable hours and insecure work means not knowing each week if you’ll be able to pay the rent, let alone live a good life”.

“Work should be a part of our lives – but secure work means our lives can be so much more,” said Caleb Gordon”.
