This weekend on The Nation...
In a week where worker’s rights have dominated headlines, how is Opposition Leader Andrew Little reshaping the Labour Party? Lisa Owen talks to him about health and safety, the TPP, and Labour’s relationship with other parties.
Then as the Government prepares to make the final push on its controversial health and safety legislation, the Maori Party’s Marama Fox and the CTU’s Jeff Sissons debate whether more needs to change and whether worm farming really is a high-risk industry.
And New Zealand’s gaming industry is a stunning success story with small businesses doing some big, multi-million dollar deals. But a new report shows growth plateauing and some of our leading entrepreneurs have some hard questions for the Government.
We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: political scientist Jon Johansson, former Green Party candidate Marama Davidson, and public relations consultant Matthew Hooton.
