Somewhat annoyed with myself for losing my workings last night, I decided to start at the other end of the alphabet this morning. Not many y or z occupations, but a fair number of Ws.
And again questions arise about the skills-based, productivity-enhancing, nature of those winery cellar hand and waiter approvals. I had a slightly closer look at the waiter ones, using MBIE’s “application type”. Somewhat to my surprise – perennial optimist that I am – this is what that breakdown looked like for the last five years.
Café society and all that, but, really, an essential skill?
