Beneficiaries advocate on Government's targets

From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 9 April 2024

The Prime Minister says his Government will work with both private companies and use public services to improve social outcomes for New Zealanders but hasn't gone as far as saying it would include helping to get the unemployed numbers down.

Christopher Luxon has set his Government nine key targets including  reducing the number of people receiving the Jobseeker Support benefit by 50,000 over the coming six years. 

Long-standing advocate for beneficiaries Kay Brereton spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
