Sosefina Masoe ‚Äď cleaner at Parliament. Apparently earns minimum wage, and ¬†has eight children in her care.
Phil Goff reckons she deserves more so is pushing for $15 per hour minimum wage.¬† Labour is spinning she can‚Äôt afford to take care of her family.¬†No matter about the personal¬†responsibility¬†involved in continuing to breed long after she lost the ability to provide for them. Let’s just ignore that for now.
Some simple calculations reveal something:
She earns the current minimum wage, $13.50, and says that’s about $453.34 in the hand a week.
Her take home is $453 per week. Her WFF Credits are worth at least $677 per week if the article claims of eight children (four teens) are correct.¬† That equates to a salary of about $70,000 per annum. She is clearly recieving more in tax credits than she pays in tax.
Labour therefore is campaigning for people earning the equivalent of $70k per annum as needy.
