Is Mana in Mahi scheme really a win-win for employers?

From Morning Report, 8:20 am on 10 August 2018

Downer New Zealand and Wellington Hospitality Group are putting their hands up and saying yes to a new scheme aimed at getting more young beneficiaries into the workforce. Yesterday the government launched Mana in Mahi which is targeting 18-24-year-olds who have been on a benefit for six months or more. It will start with a pilot for up to 150 people but there's an ambitious target to get up to four thousand into the scheme. Wellington Hospitality Group chief executive Jamie Williams and Downer NZ HR general manager, Debbie Kirby discuss with Susie Ferguson.
