ACC to slash 70 jobs in restructuring
Great headline BUT when you actually read the details it actually is saying that overall ACC are taking on an extra 30 people.
About 70 jobs will go in a restructuring of the Accident Compensation Corporation's head office.

"Second, the proposed new structures would better support changes to some other parts of our business, including putting more focus on the front line where we are adding another 100 roles. They also recognise the fact that some programmes of work have been completed, de-scoped or stopped.
So the final completed, de-scoped (for some wierd reason I like that word),stopped end result is
So really the headline should be
