Policy Recommendations for New Zealand
- The New Zealand government should provide financial assistance for employment related expenses for beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries who are working part-time.
- Income abatement rate for the Unemployment Benefit should be changed, i.e reduce the benefit payment base on net (after tax) additional income, rather than before tax income (current system)
- Should consider:
- Australia style : Working Credits, or Work for the dole system
- UK system of National Insurance Credit
