NZPA reports on how 15 former WINZ staff who stole from WINZ are now on benefits and repaying the money from their benefits.
So the taxpayer:
* paid them a salary while employed by WINZ
* had them steal an additional $1 million from us from being paid by us
* had us no doubt fund their legal aid
* are now giving them a benefit
* and we are getting repaid out of the very benefit we are giving them
Wow we lose out big don’t we.
