- Increasing the amount of money people who are working part-time can earn while on a benefit
- Continuing the welfare overhaul and implementing the recommendations of the Welfare Expert Advisory Group
- Revamping and expanding the Flexi-wage programme to support up to 40,000 more New Zealanders into work or to set up a business
