国家党透露为求职者受益人的红绿灯系统

澳纽资讯 编辑精选

【澳纽网编译】国家党宣布推出一个可能会导致“有能力工作”的人在求职者福利金上减少或暂停的制度。

国家党社会发展和就业发言人路易丝·厄普斯顿(Louise Upston)表示,该党将引入一个“交通灯制度”来帮助更多的Jobseeker Support福利金受益人就业。

这将使“领取JobSeeker福利金的失业人士明确了解他们的义务以及如果他们拒绝尽自己的一份力量将面临什么后果”。

在红色级别,一个人可能会面临福利金减少或暂停,包括强制性的社区工作经验和资金管理制裁。

厄普斯顿表示:“就业是摆脱困境的最佳途径”,因为它给人们带来了“更大的独立性、选择和机会,也更有利于纳税人”。

她说,“福利依赖”在工党政府下已经“大幅增长”。

“工党取消了那些不履行准备或找工作义务的求职者明确的后果。

“在今年6月结束的12个月内,违反义务的求职者被处罚的数量约为国家党政府执政时期的一半,尽管那时求职者的数量增加了45%。”

国家党领袖克里斯托弗·卢克森在奥克兰向媒体发表讲话时表示,这关乎“权利和责任”。

卢克森说,福利体系是为人们在寻找工作时提供支持的,“而不是困住他们在福利依赖中”。

他表示,大约85%的Jobseeker福利金受益人是守法的,履行义务。

今天的公告将影响“相对较小的一群人”。

卢克森说,新西兰存在劳动力短缺问题。

“这个[工党]政府的一个杰出遗产将是’在低失业率环境下,这个国家到处都存在着劳动力短缺的情况下,你们是如何设法让6万多人领取失业救济金的’,”卢克森说。

厄普斯顿表示,雇员被期望履行义务,否则将面临后果,因此在国家党政府下领取Jobseeker福利金的人也将被期望履行他们的义务,否则将会有后果。

“我们还将要求受益人每六个月申请Jobseeker福利金,而不是每年申请一次 – 这允许工作和收入部门对他们进行检查,以确保他们得到所需的支持,同时也确保他们仍然有资格,”厄普斯顿说。

“我们将寻求书面证明人们正在提交申请并参加面试。对于那些有逮捕令但没有自首的人,我们还将有一个一个月的等待期。我们还将福利金与通货膨胀挂钩。”

厄普斯顿表示,交通灯制度是当前适用的制度的延伸。

“我们希望制裁不是财务制裁。我们认为,如果人们没有履行寻找工作、采取非常明智、切实可行的步骤来寻找工作的协议,他们将面临后果。这是一种非财务制裁。”

厄普斯顿无法给出一个具体的目标数字。

她表示,为Jobseeker福利金受益人提供工作的组织分享的“最大的挫折之一是人们不…可靠地去做工作…而且没有后果”。

“国家党希望看到更多的新西兰人脱离福利,就业。”
