New Zealand free?!?!
We're living in oligarch's wet dream here!
Unions destroyed years ago, privatised public services, low tax rates, corporate media, sedated population, low wages, no tax on capital gains the list goes on and on.
Australia has one huge advantage over NZ, you've still got strong unions. Therefore you've got: 1. better pay 2. employees who are at least exposed to how industrial relations are supposed to work.
Over here people just take what they're given because they've been told for over 30 years that they're worthless and so people actually believe it.
