WINZ – The Job We Choose For You

'The job we choose for you is better than any work you could choose' is wrong. It's wrong in New Zealand, wrong in the UK and wrong in the States. But this is the latest mantra of their benefit systems.

Immense talent is wasted by jobs that don't realise our potential, all this when a base income would enable everyone to make their best contribution. With time, some of these contributions would generate enormous incomes which can be shared to sustain an ever greater base income.
