WFF coming under fire

Labour’s much vaunted Working for Families package is coming under increasing fire as people discover the trap associated with it.
[quote]"It appears that this is a scheme where the lazy and not so hard-working people are better off than the hard-working and not lazy working-class people,"[/quote]

That is a quote from Josephine Kent who has found that if she works fewer hours, her household  ends up with more money in the hand, rather than less. And if she went back to working 51 hours a week, as she used to, she would, in effect, be making only $1.12 an hour.

Yep, that is the abatement rates at work.

Watch this problem grow and grow and grow as more people become aware of the trap.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
