Fair Pay Agreements = Wage Control



The New Zealand Taxpayers’
Union
is warning against the
Government’s
plan
for Fair Pay Agreements
, calling the
policy a form of wage control.

Union
spokesman Jordan Williams says, “This is an incredibly
backward policy that lets Wellington decide pay rates for
entire sectors and industries. It’s a major step towards
central control of the New Zealand economy, and a complete
denial of the diverse circumstances and needs of individual
businesses.”

“Higher wage costs will ultimately be
passed on to consumers – an enormous regulatory tax. And
bureaucratic, inflexible wage agreements will create avenues
for costly litigation.”

“The Government’s
handout for Business New Zealand stinks of a cynical attempt
to buy support for the policy. But the group being paid to
support wage control are sticking to their guns and pointing
out how destructive it is
. Good on
them.”
