Millionaire NZ PM: Screw the Poor

Posted by te2ataria on January 18, 2010

SHAME ON YOU JOHN KEY!

Sent by a reader in Sewage City [Wellington]

John Key: No one would ever become a millionaire on an honest day’s work or on NZ$15 per hour, so why bother?

The rags-to-$80million-riches PM of New Zealand has ruled out a minimum wage increase to NZ$15 this year despite two-thirds of New Zealanders supporting the increase.

  • Current min wage in NZ (foreign workers and trainees get a lot less) :  NZ$12.50 per hour
  • Current min wage in Australia, calculated at an exchange rate of 1.255: NZ$17.98 per hour


As John Key, the millionaire PM of New Zealand, stands in front of his palatial home in St Stevens Ave, Parnell, Auckland, reportedly worth $9 million. As John Key’s estimated wealth reaches $80 to $100 million  mark, one in six New Zealanders, both Maori and Europeans, live in poverty. Photo: Geoff Dale. Image may be subject to copyright

I Kill, You cook, I get more!

A NZ Army Warrant Officer Class One receives about NZ$75,000 base salary plus lots of allowances and extras, whereas the catering workers are expected to live on less than NZ$22,000 for comparable work.  http://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/49761/air-force-catering-staff-strike-over-wages

About 100,000 New Zealanders receive the minimum wage, which is not enough to live on!

New Zealand Kills Another American Tourist

Posted by te2ataria on January 18, 2010

The Unnecessary and Avoidable Tourist-Killing Season is Back, Again!

An American woman was killed in the Mohaka River near Hastings, New Zealand, during a rafting incident yesterday at 15:00, police said.

However, they have not revealed how she was killed. Her body was unceremoniously recovered from the river and dumped in the hospital morgue at the Hawke’s Bay Hospital.

The deceased victim was holidaying with her family in Taupo, police told NZPA, the New Zealand monopoly in charge of news control in the country and the unofficial government mouthpiece.

To any of our US readers wondering why more foreigners are killed in New Zealand than in Afghanistan, even though New Zealand is NOT officially at war with the US or any other country [perhaps with the exception of China, India and a few other “colored countries,”] a list of probable reasons are:

1. Most of New Zealand natural features used for adventure tourism are deadly, even to the most experienced.

2. In New Zealand you don’t need a license to run an “adventure tourism” outlet (permits could easily be bought, if needed).

3. Nearly all venues used for extreme outdoor activities are unsupervised.

4. Most of the equipment hired for such pastimes are defective, unserviced and genearlly poorly maintained, when regular maintenance could decide life or death.

5. There are no official bodies to advise tourists on safety, despite the fact the government and businesses rake in billions from tourism.

6. Tourists visiting New Zealand are statistically up to 50 times more likely to get killed [and up to 300 times more likely to sustain serious injuries] here than in their own countries.

The blog moderator, editors and contributors offer their condolences to the family and friends of the victim. Her death was unnecessary and avoidable.

While no amount of money could ever bring back your beloved wife and mother, and her loss becomes even more painful when you realize that she was a routine victim of New Zealand’s predatory tourism industry, the blog advises you to seek maximum compensation for her death. By claiming maximum compensation for the wrongful, negligent death of your loved one, you could help reduce the death toll of foreigners visiting New Zealand.

Families of the individuals who have been killed in New Zealand as a result of government negligence, or corporate manslaughter, should sue each and every party that was responsible for the death, negligent homicide, for maximum damages and penalties.

New Zealand IS NOT a safe tourist destination. The fact that tourists are lured to this country believing it’s a safe place, should be regarded as deceptive advertising and be used as basis for product liability claims.
