People in lower income jobs to be most affected if retirement age goes up – Chris Hipkins

Matt from Henderson

My view is retirement if going to keep going up every year or every so often, what is people our age from 30 upwards going to have when we get to that age? Has any actually thought about that? I am not being mean to anyone in respect with the retirement age going up or down, but am just concerned if like my generation now, I'm in my mid 30's still young and active, what will happen if retirement age does keep going up and up? What the next generation look forward to when we get to that age? You need to think of not just older people (no respect) but what will your children or grandchildren in their 30's onwards have for an retirement? Can you see it on a bigger scale to speak? Here's the youtube clip about the retirement age with John Campbell.

Public transport: How does Auckland compare to other cities?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, Poor public transport is among the most pressing challenges facing Auckland's tourism industry, multiple studies have found. Auckland Transport hopes a new public transport system to the airport will help solve the problem. What do you think of Auckland's public transport? How does it compare to other cities you've visited? What should be done to improve it?

Bad landlord blames 'cheeky' tenants

Fiona from Henderson

For crying out loud.
www.stuff.co.nz...
It's revolting, callous landlords like this person who make it terribly difficult for the excellent landlords that are out there.
Everything this woman did was illegal according to the Tenancy Tribunal and the Residential Tenancies Act.
This following part implies that she hasn't been paying tax on any of her rentals.
"When Li asked for a written agreement, Robb said if they signed one she would need to pay tax and the rent would increase by 15 per cent, the tribunal found."
So, I think a visit from the I.R.D. for a full audit is well overdue.
Also, "I'm not bad, I'm good. I want to do good things for this country. These Chinese students know the law, in a cheeky way, they go to the Tenancy Tribunal."
Oh, so the tenants are the bad ones? You want to do good things for this country yet you are avoiding paying your taxes!!!!
Where she blames the tenants for asking for a verbal contract, rather than a written one, what a load of balderdash!! If she knows the law like she thinks she does, she would know what is required of her as a landlord.
What did she do with the bond payments I wonder?
As she is known to the tenancy tribunal, I really do believe that she along with any of her family memebrs who are helping her run this renting business, need to be thoroughly investigated by all of the appropriate departments, starting with the I.R.D.!
