In theory that's true.
Unfortunately the low skilled low paid people who are normally subject to these kinds of travails don't have great work place mobility.
Why is it so unacceptable to offer them a bit of long term stability?
Don't answer that, I'm sure reasons to discard them would be offered.

You seem to have a hell of a chip on your shoulder with your one eyed view of employment in NZ.
That's one of your favourites isn't it
Yes, thats what I'm saying. I think the 'modern' idea of employment contracts is seriously flawed.
I agree with you about your comments about staff and for workers with good employers the feeling is reciprocated. Thats why so many workers put a great deal of their personal energy into their employment and form great relationships with firms over decades.
The dream of high paid 6 month contract work might sit well for a DB developer in the city, but it's not going to be much good for a cleaner at the airport.
