Labour Shortage: Government Responds - By Text

Pressure from the ODT's Rosie Manins (who again has a front page article on the subject) has seen an item on TVNZ news take up the cause. The Government has responded, by sending a text or an e-mail to all those in NZ on working holiday schemes encouraging them to head for Central Otago. The response from industry seems to be mildly positive, but with people believing that this is too little, too late. Sorry, David Parker. Your chance of winning the seat back is now lose to nil. Not a good start to the year.
