The government has made changes to the controversial Hobbit law that was enacted by the National Government in 2010. The law took away the right for those working in the industry to collectively bargain and took away ther right to contest their employment status. Labour initially promised to repeal the law, but after a working group instead decided to change the law to allow for collective baragning but striking is illegal. Lachlan spoke with Melissa Ansell-Bridges from Equity New Zealand, an actors union, about the changes.
