Radio NZ reports:
Budgeting services and opposition parties say struggling workers will be hit hard by increased costs that came into effect on 1 April.
Minimum KiwiSaver contributions rose from 2% to 3% …
The Labour and Green parties say some workers already struggling financially may choose to opt out of KiwiSaver rather than make the higher payments.
Again, such hypocrisy. Labour not only bitterly complained about National dropping the minimum contribution from 4% to 2%, they also have a policy of making KiwiSaver compulsory so struggling workers get no choice about contributing!
Would be nice if the media reported their policies, not just their releases!
