In the last set of jobs figures before the election, Statistics New Zealand has reported surprisingly weak jobs growth and still-subdued wage growth in the June quarter.

The jobs growth was also dominated by Auckland and Christchurch and was concentrated in the lower wage areas of retailing, fast food outlets and hotels.
