Part 1 of 5, during Nine to Noon with Kathryn Ryan
In this week’s five part Reading of Hard Up (New Zealand) Limited, by Susy Pointon, a Business Enterprise scheme intended to give a group of unemployed the skills to set up a business and get back into the work force, is subverted somewhat when the group pool their skills and decide that bank robbery is their best business option to pursue.
Told with wit and insight, Hard Up (NZ) Ltd, paints a portrait of life on the benefit in a small New Zealand town.
Read by Aaron Alexander.
