It's all about balance

Just some quick comments about the Green's employment policy: My main concern is with the increase in the minimum wage to $12 an hour. It sounds very nice, but such a massive increase (it's currently $9.50) could cripple business - and that aint good for workers either. Regular, small increases are the way to go, such as those introduced by the Labour party. I DO however, agree with getting rid of youth rates - nice idea, and frogblog gives some good reasons here. I mean, why would a 16 year old be motivated to work harder for better wages, if they know it just won't happen until they're 18?
