Shameless poverty in “Godzone”

Posted by te2ataria on July 18, 2016

The next time somebody calls this toilet “Godzone”, or even a country…

A significant proportion of Kiwi teenagers are living in poverty, according to research conducted by Auckland University.

About “one in five secondary school students and nearly half of all Pacific students” are  struggling, the study has revealed.

The massive problem was here to stay, said KidsCan chief executive Julie Chapman.

“With some families spending 60 to 70 per cent of their income on housing, there was little room for anything else,” a report quoted her as saying.

Recently there had been a big demand for hygiene packs for young adults, consisting of items such as deodorant, toothpaste and shampoo.

With the items expensive and many family budgets stretched there was often no room for them on the shopping list, she said. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/82211556/Half-of-all-New-Zealand-Pacific-teenagers-living-in-poverty-study-claims

The study used data from the Youth 2012 study of 8,500 students, and was ;published in the International Journal for Equity in Health.

Poverty and living conditions

  • In 2015, some 305,000 (29%) of dependent 0–17 year olds were living in income poverty defined using a relative threshold measure of below 60% of the median income after housing costs were taken into consideration. In 2013, the percentage was 24%. In 1982, the percentage was 14%.    (Source: http://www.nzchildren.co.nz/)

Two out of five impoverished kiwi kids live in working families

Posted by te2ataria on December 9, 2013

For each kiwi child in poverty, NZ Govt spends $20,000 on the military [to stop Ottoman Empire advancing on Otago!]

Increasingly, many more children living in crammed homes are ending up in hospital, according to a new report.

“I see these poor preschool children in crowded homes that are cold and damp coming in with skin infections. They are filling our wards,” Children’s Commissioner Russell Wills, a Hawke’s Bay paediatrician, said.

“The report, called the Child Poverty Monitor, was commissioned by Dr Wills after the Government rejected calls to start a comprehensive measure of child poverty, according to a report.

STATE OF CHILD POVERTY

  • 265,000 children live in poverty, defined by income.
  • 1 in 3 Maori and Pacific children live in poverty.
  • 1 in 7 European children live in poverty.
  • 1 in 6 struggle to afford basic necessities such as healthcare and clothing.
  • 1 in 10 suffer from severe poverty, lacking basic necessities and adequate income.
  • 3 out of 5 will be living in poverty for much of their childhood.
  • 2 out of 5 impoverished kids living in working families.
  • 51 per cent are from sole parent families.
  • 60 per cent are from beneficiary families.

In Mr Key’s New Zealand …

How do they do it?

NZ PM  Key and his corrupt government spend massive sums of money commissioning FAKE feel-good polls/reports.

Wealth Gap in New Zealand at All-Time High

Posted by te2ataria on August 24, 2012

One quarter of NZ children living in Poverty

‘One quarter of all New Zealand children are growing up in poverty. That’s about 270,000 kids.’ Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand said.

WELLINGTON, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) — A government report Thursday showed the wealth gap between New Zealand’s richest and poorest people was at its greatest ever.

The Ministry of Social Development report on household incomes came a day after the government statistics agency showed a continued exodus of more than 1,000 New Zealanders every week leaving for Australia, where pay and living standards are higher.

The report said that inequality had decreased significantly from 2009 to 2010, before rising in 2011 “to its highest level ever.”

The volatility reflected the impact of the global financial crisis and the report’s authors were “not sure where it will settle.”

New Zealand ranked “a little above the median similar to Australia, Japan and Canada” on the inequality scale of the OECD ( Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) group of developed countries, but the most recent figures from the OECD were from 2009, said the report.

Opposition political parties and trade unions were quick to criticize the economic policies of the center-right National Party- led coalition, which came to power in 2008 and was re-elected last year.

“Between 2010 and 2011 the average income for workers fell 3 percent in real terms, and the gap between rich and poor has never been wider in New Zealand’s history,” said leader of the main opposition Labor Party David Shearer.

“And what’s even worse, the number of children living in hardship has increased from 15 percent in 2007 to 21 percent last year,” Shearer said in a statement.

Branding the figures a disgrace, he said the report exposed the government economic failure for all to see.

With middle incomes falling and only the wealthiest seeing their incomes rise, the report proved that the average family was financially worse off under the National Party-led government, said Green Party co-leader Russel Norman.

“Middle New Zealand is being ground down by government policy, with their incomes falling by 3 percent, while tax cuts for the well-off have seen those at the top do better,” Norman said in a statement.

The Council of Trade Unions said the government was actively creating a class of working poor.

“This government is presiding over record inequality. Rather than addressing the problem, it’s only making things worse with unfair tax changes and unfair employment law changes,” CTU president Helen Kelly said in a statement.

The report was released the same day Australian Member of Parliament Kelvin Thompson suggested a quota of 30,000 to 40,000 New Zealanders allowed to migrate to Australia each year.

The net loss of New Zealand migrants to Australia in the year ending July was 39,800, equal to the highest ever net loss recorded in both the April 2012 and June 2012 years, Statistics New Zealand announced Wednesday.

The figure resulted from a record 53,900 departures to Australia, offset by 14,000 arrivals from Australia and most migrants in both directions were New Zealand citizens.

YOU HAVE DONE MORE HARM TO THIS COUNTRY THAN ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL SINCE JAMES COOK

[At least] One in four NZ kid lives in poverty: Report


John Key, seen swimming in his multi-million dollar mansion’s pool (Parnell, Auckland) has an estimated wealth of at least NZ$50million  [that’s his declared wealth; his total booty may be 3 times as much as that.] But where did he get all that money? How much more work did he do than does the average kiwi to amass so much money? 
Photo credit:  Simon Young-from metro issue 286, April 2005.

New Zealand has the highest teenage pregnancy and the worst suicide rate—twice the OECD 30-country average.

“New Zealand currently spends US$14,600 ($17,500) per child whilst, in comparison, Scandinavian countries spend US$50,000 per child under six. Other countries, like the Netherlands, spend less but have better outcomes. The stark reality is that poor outcomes for children are costing New Zealand $6 billion per year in areas such as health, welfare services, crime and justice.” Unicef New Zealand spokesman said.

“[At least] 270,000 New Zealand children live in poverty – that’s one in four. These are not nameless, faceless kids; they are our kids, and they deserve better,” Mrs Turei said.

[NOTE: The true figure is more than 300,000 kids! Blog Moderator ]

Merely reflecting the social psyche

We neither manufacture hatred, nor spread any

The Blog merely reflects the mayhem at the ‘animal farm’

Reader 1234 wrote:

while it is your right to express your own opinion i hope that you realize that when you spread hate, hate is all you will receive in return and eventually that hate will eat you up. have you ever thought about using the time and energy you put into writing snarky comments on the internet, on trying to implement real, beneficial change in your community?

The Blog Reply:

This website does not spread anymore hate than does the government (the upper echelons of pakeha community, military, judiciary, police, politicians, national media), if indeed any.

The blog merely reflects the activity at the “animal farm.”

For your information, 80% of the blog contributors are “pious pakeha” who are fed up with status quo, a sick system laden with oppression, tyranny and injustice.

  • NZ PM, John Key,  accelerates from $0 to $50 million (possibly $80million) in 20 years
  • Maori from abundance to abject poverty in 170 years
  • pakeha from $0 to minus ($60,000) in about 20 years
    [Bill English’s doctored figure for 2008 national debt was $45,000 per person.]

If reading this blog doesn’t help the foolish foreign tourists/ immigrants in search of paradise (who end up in the kingdom of heaven instead), my community and yours to wake up to the ground realities in New Zealand, then nothing will.

NZ Bathtub Navy Boat: F**k the Bloody Kids in Poverty, or FBKP- BNB1

rotoiti
New Zealand government has spent$500 million on Project Protector, buying four 340-ton, 55-meter bathtub patrol vessels, FBKP- BNB1 [aka, Roiti]  “F**ck the Bloody Kids in Poverty – BNB2 [aka Pukaki,]  F**ck the Bloody Kids in Poverty – BNB3 [aka Hawea,] and F**ck the Bloody Kids in Poverty- BNB4  [aka Titanic Taupo.] Image may be subject to copyright.

One expert was quoted as saying that “the vessels will protect our waters” from mutant “killer dolphin” babies whose brains are affected by rat poison dropped on them by … the government.

Nevertheless, NZ govt has spent $2,277 on behalf of every kid living in abject poverty to protect them from  sea monsters and maritime enemies such as China, Myanmar, North Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan …  whose soldiers lurk in our coastal waters.
