No love for the workers The National Government have shown their contempt for low paid workers in New Zealand, by throwing 25 cents to those on the minimum wage. Half a million workers in NZ earn less than $15 an hour, and people simply can’t make ends meet on such low pay. The day before Valentine’s Day, join your fellow workers in nationwide pickets of your local National Party MPs offices. They have shown that they have no love for the workers
 – there is no quarter from National!
