The glaring omission from National's COVID-19 economic plan

National has declared December 1 'Freedom Day' - but even sooner if we hit 85 percent of the eligible population fully vaccinated. 

It's also promising a whopping $1 billion for all workers, which works out to a not-so-whopping $4.03 each week. 

But within National's plan was one glaring omission. It left out half the population: women. 

"We need to have some targets," National leader Judith Collins said on Wednesday as she revealed the party's COVID-19 economic plan. 

"The Government needs to grow a spine and to get on and tell people, 'This is what we're going to do'."

National set its own target - alert level 1 by December, or when 85 percent of eligible Kiwis are double-vaccinated. 

"Whichever comes earlier," Collins said. 

Any region already there could lift restrictions immediately.

"Doing whatever it takes to avoid lockdown," Collins added. 

And to make life easier for business, the plan gives everyone who's fully immunised a $100 'dine and discover' voucher.

For small businesses there are tax cuts, and all Kiwi workers would get a tax cut too - which all adds up to $2.9 billion. 

You'd get $4.03 a week from the income tax cut and Kiwis Newshub spoke to weren't too enthused by it. 

"What can you do with $4.03 a week?" one person said. 

Another described it as "nothing" while others said they'd spend it on a bus fare or a coffee. 

Over a year, it adds up to $210. 

"That can pay the rates, that can pay a week's worth of rent," Collins said. 

But $210 isn't even half the median rent, which is actually $540 a week. 

While it wasn't quite last year's fiscal hole, National's plan left women out of the workforce, using only the male unemployment rate of 3.8 percent. 

"You're talking about in the facts page?" National MP Michael Woodhouse asked, when it was pointed out to him that the female unemployment rate was absent from the plan. 

He passed the buck to National MP Andrew Bayly. 

"We were going to have both and we ended up just having one," Bayly said. "We do know that the employment rate is 4 percent... It was just the way we were going to present it. We changed it at the last moment."

Collins said they landed on having "one number". 

"I wouldn't have thought anyone in this modern day would assume that unemployment is determined solely by men," said Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. 

Green Party co-leader James Shaw described it as "sloppy".

Even ACT leader David Seymour took a crack. 

"I thought Men at Work was a band from the 80s - but it turns out it's also a National policy."

National's plan has, however, been welcomed by the business community, given the severe burden of lockdowns. 

And the fact that they're actually presenting a plan goes down well with the Government appearing to now be making up its COVID-19 response as it goes along. 

That, coupled with them overseeing a sluggish vaccination rollout, means there's plenty for the Opposition to prosecute.

But National keeps getting undermined by its own simple mistakes, like forgetting half of the workforce.
