First Charges Laid over Wage Subsidy

Frans from Karapiro - Maungatautari

I know of many employers/businesses here in the Waikato who abused the Wage Subsidy when first introduced in 2020. I worked for one of them. Many got richer during & after getting the subsidy. I worked for one of them. Many laid staff off before or as soon as the Subsidy ran out. I know all about that as well because my employer laid me and another employee off as soon as subsidy expired! Anyone know of any employers abusing the wage subsidy last year or since, please do the right thing, Contact Ministry for Social Development and lodge your complaint. It's tax payers money that these employers got rich on while some of us, that were laid off, have and still are suffering while trying to survive on a benefit.

Countdown pricing

Sharon from Leamington

Went to countdown other night, there was 5 shelves prepackaged lamb steaks with no pricing on
Checked with an assistant who scanned pricing for me
The packs were all priced $12
Issue was no procing and all the packs were 270g
That works out to ve nearly $50 a kilo for those whi have brought and not realised
Seems to be a deliberate action to rip off
Not sure what consumer would think
