More porkies from Prebble?

"Name the employers," Labour employment relations spokesperson Pete Hodgson challenged Richard Prebble today.
Mr Prebble told One Network News last night: "I've got employers in my electorate who've had people who've turned up, worked for two days, and they have then had to pay them $4000 just because they didn't like the job."
Mr Hodgson said the statement could not go unchallenged.
"I feel entitled to demand evidence particularly as Mr Prebble has a reputation for gross exaggeration.
"He has already told a number of porkies on the campaign trail and will no doubt get even more fictional now that his party is dropping like a stone in the polls," Mr Hodgson said.
