    Its starting to happen.REvolt!.France is just the beginning imo. People have had enough , the gap is getting wider in most countries, luckily the govt here is really dedicated to looking after all kiwis and is proactive unlike Macron who has been forced to back down for the first time. Will it save him, i doubt it.

    Well, I'm finding this rise in the Minimum wage all a bit sad and tragic.

    Every single piece of media and political coverage I have come across welcomes it as it will: help the families, help get rid of child poverty, put milk on the kids table, buy shoes for the kids. Even the Living Wage advocate (Murile Newman?) is harping on about how it wil lift family income which is great.

    Not one single word on Working for Families. Not one!

    Dont any of these people realise that the more you earn the less you get in Working for Families benefits?. There are going to be some very disappointed people mid april next year.

    I guess on the positive side I should be thankful for labour reducing my tax obligations by shifting the WFF burdon off the taxpayer onto employers. That, along with more PAYE and GST I'm looking forward to my tax reduction on April.

    It is likely that some of those workers will get laid off or not replaced before the increase comes into effect.

    There is a need to keep increasing the minimum wage though so that WFF is reduced. The announcement of the increase should have included the effect on WFF.

    Most sensible people know a leopard doesn't change his spots. But not Labour. Wally Haumaha is a changed man they reckon. No longer supports the raping ex police men. Is kind and considerate to all women and mankind. So it comes a no surprise he's actually a workplace bully and, surprisingly, the Independent Police Complaints Authority found against him.

    Its not looking good for those on the minimum wage. I reckon its better to have a wage than none at all. From Stats NZ today:

    "Gross domestic product (GDP) rose 0.3 percent in the September 2018 quarter, down from 1.0 percent in the previous quarter, Stats NZ said today.
    The latest growth is the lowest quarterly growth rate since December 2013.
    Growth was mixed, with 11 of the 16 industries recording higher production in the September 2018 quarter.
    “Primary industries grew 2.2 percent, while growth in service industries slowed to 0.5 percent. The goods-producing industries fell 1.0 percent, dragging down overall growth this quarter,” national accounts senior manager Susan Hollows said.
    “Construction activity fell as repair work winds down on roads damaged in the Kaikōura earthquake. However, residential and non-residential construction continued to grow steadily.
    “The largest contribution to the downturn in goods-producing industries was manufacturing, with food manufacturing down significantly,” Mrs Hollows said.

    NZ has posted its biggest current account deficit with the rest of the world at $10.5b since 2009 GFC (3.6% of GDP).

    Slowing economy as well.

    Now that's a big surprise. The Government has all the parties that had the phony "manufacturing inquiry" a few years ago as they were so concerned about the state of the then booming manufacturing industry. Now that industry is slowing down fast according to StatsNZ : "The largest contribution to the downturn in goods-producing industries was manufacturing, with food manufacturing down significantly,"

    The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) are now undertaking a review on the decision-making process and INZ would now undertake reviews on how they prepared case files.

    A few key pieces of information ILG missed.

    He was a drug smuggler, smuggling drugs into NZ to be sold to NZ'ers who no doubt had families. (means he is at least dishonest)

    He was a fraudster, so much so there is confusion about his name. (Means he is a liar)

    AND HE WAS IN JAIL(Means hes a dumb fvck for getting caught)

    And hes going to make a model NZ citizen worth a chance because...………….?

    Not sure if the Minister has really weathered this storm despite the spin. The issue will taint him for a very long time. His name and Mr Sroubek's will always be linked in the minds of the general public and on the interweb. Even if there are no more revelations to come.

    National have tried their hardest to taint him, with all that mud but he has weathered that battering bull dust integrity intact. Cynic in me thinks he may even have been set up by a public servant or two. How could they have omitted that critical piece of information and be that incompetent?

    How could anyone claim 'his integrity is intact'?

    His INTEGRITY is still INTACT? For the sake of X-mas let's save that for the year ahead but he should still be wearing a DUNCE hat when parliament reconvenes next year!
