Jobs Machine

The latest Ministry of Truth figures are out on teen unemployment. Good news, everybody! Benefit numbers are at a two year low!

With less than a week before the Heineken Mastercard Rugby World Cup kicks off, you'd presume that there would be a need for cheap casual labour somewhere. Sure enough, they're all working for minimum wage (or less) at the understaffed and under-prepared novelty Wynard Quarter.

Wait til after Xmas and see how the figures look then. Ah, but Chris Trotter's ear for wit has beaten me to the punchline.
