The New Zealand ‘Holocaust’
A reader sent in the following link from the Urban Dictionary:
New Zealand Holocaust
The term to describe the massive native population decline in New Zealand. 25 percent of New Zealand college graduates have fled New Zealand, and nearly 20 percent of adult working age New Zealanders do not live in New Zealand. 1000 New Zealanders a week move to Australia to make significantly more money and life better lives in cities that are not crime ridden, tall poppy syndrome ridden, road to nowhere hellholes that exist in New Zealand. 1% of the New Zealand population leaves its country each year.Did you see that new guy at work? He’s a New Zealander.
Yes, he’s the fifth New Zealander I’ve seen today. They are all coming over here because there’s nothing in New Zealand but sheep and crime ridden cities. It’s like a New Zealand Holocaust over there.by MARIO VAN FEEBLES Jun 16, 2011
Job market ‘challenging’ govt admits
The government is blaming the global financial crisis and the Canterbury earthquakes for a “challenging” job market.
Unemployment rose to 6.7 per cent in the last quarter and at the end of March there were 160,000 people out of work, Statistics NZ said on Thursday.
That’s a 0.3 per cent increase on the previous quarter, which hadn’t been expected.
The labour force swelled to a three-year high and more people were chasing jobs.
Employment Minister Steven Joyce says there’s a gradual and steady increase in the number of jobs available.
“These figures continue to reflect a challenging job market as the country continues to deal with the impact of the global financial crisis and the Canterbury earthquakes,” he said…”

In the comments section of the article Kiwis say:
“too many kiwis are voting with their passports.That is what i voted last election:pack up to OZ.I wish i could have stayed in NZ but it was financial suicide”
“Increase the minimum wage and people will have more to spend and that will stimulate the economy not to mention encouraging young ones to stay in the country.That is a start but the minimum wage stays the same and prices go up.Someone please organise a portest,all minimum wage earners go on strike and the country will come to a stand still.maybe then they will listen.The country is nothing without the working class.”
