Mark the Week: Who really pays for the minimum wage increase? - The Mike Hosking Breakfast

The Mike Hosking Breakfast

At the end of each week, Mike Hosking takes you through the big-ticket items and lets you know what he makes of it all.
Minimum Wage Increase.
6/10.
"Obviously good for those who get it.
But who really pays for it? Can they afford it? And if they can't, how many jobs go by the wayside?"
Top Income Tax Rate Lift.
3/10.
"Successful economies aim to tax less, not more."
Light Rail.
2/10.
"Of all the things this government has failed to deliver, I pray this is another.
It's stupid, wasteful, and as likely to revolutionise travel as their equally mad train from Hamilton, isn't."
Pike River.
6/10.
It cost more, it took more time, and for what?
Closure? Hopefully.
But what else? Was it always a forlorn hope and an empty political promise?"
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.
9/10.
"The final seconds against Canberra showed he's as good as you get.
And the Warriors with a win to remember are the real deal."
Liam Lawson.
8/10.
"A dream start in Formula 2.
And Formula 1 an increasingly real prospect."
Scott Robertson.
7/10.
"Wouldn’t you hire him if you were England?"
Opposition to New Zealand Rugby's Silver Lake Deal.
4/10.
"Are we looking a gift horse in the mouth?
Half a billion in a sport desperate for money, the ability to revolutionise the game and income streams, and allegedly the Players Association hold the cards.
What's wrong with this picture?"
Short Working Weeks.
 
7/10.
 
"Widely considered a success, aren't they?"
