Christopher Luxon is taking a break from serving up policies today, to serve up burgers.

He's going back to his first ever job, working a shift at Merivale McDonalds in response to the current low employment figures and worker shortages.

New Zealand's unemployment rate is at 3.2 percent, with 50-thousand people on work benefits.

The National party leader told Mike Hosking that the importance of a job is that it provides a sense of dignity.

Luxon says National will cut benefits to those who are capable, but aren't actively seeking work.
