Here it is, always starts about 13-14 months before a general election – the National party right wing haters start trashing poor people on benefits. And here is what THE TAXPAYERS $1.5 million salary to the CEO of TVNZ gets you – with the promoted and justified latest $120,000 increase. YOUR TAXES FOLKS, YOUR TAXES.
This news item is nothing more than government propaganda and we all know the rubbish we are forced to watch on TVNZ nowadays, which includes huge amounts of advertising. Advertising limits on TV were removed when neo-liberal terrorists took over New Zealand in 1984. As manufacturing jobs were driven overseas to ‘developing’ countries like China they needed people to become consumers, advertising brainwashing has done that – and destroyed our society and planet at the same time.
Remember every cent a beneficiary spends in the community, they support small and medium sized business profits. Most of these people are part of the REQUIRED UNEMPLOYED for a low wage economy like we have. Many working part-time, many with injuries & disabilities who can only work part-time and are penalised for it. At the moment if you are on invalids benefit and get a small job of less than 15 hours a week you will get less money working than if you didn’t. Years of cruel elitist governments did that purposely.
This news item should never have been written or published and if it was, the comparison should have been how much money is lost in contract overpayments to businesses who DON’T STAY WITHIN THEIR OFFICIAL QUOTES. Cost overruns on public projects by private enterprise that cost TAXPAYERS $billions.
