What New Zealanders Say About NZ – “Government Treats Immigration as a Business”


Migrants are nothing but a revenue stream for NZ and they get little in return

Sometimes New Zealanders need to hear a few home truths about their country from outsiders to see things as they really are. Its good to know that what we all share on this site is changing perceptions.

Here’s something that was shared by a New Zealander telling how thousands of migrants in New Zealand are disillusioned because most of them were misled.

I better not go into details, I have met hundreds if not thousands of totally disillusioned migrants to this country, and that is because most were misled re opportunity, the false label of fairness, the promises of inclusiveness, of a future, of opportunity, and while some may have had too high expectations, most seemed real and honest, they started to actually question and hate this country.

Truth is, we have had this under this government, and the previous one, to be honest, they treat immigration as a business, a revenue earner, a low risk experiment, to get people in, to work on trial, or study and work on trial, and if they fit in, to some degree, they may get a permanent residence permit. That also includes a wide variety of investors and business migrants.

But as usual, once problems arise, or once the results are not delivered, especially if you show serious health issues that may cost society, you will be shifted out a.s.a.p., and no chance of re-applying. NZ is a total BS society in this, and sadly most honest, ordinary Kiwis have NO idea about what goes on, all they see and hear is, more migrants, more expectations, more possible competition for jobs and business, and “it cannot be good”.

I actually agree with the latter, it is not good for many migrants nor locals, to have such a BS dishonest system, that only creates friction, tension and competition, and where endless pressures are created, not met by housing, health care, education and more.

So we have a shit Auckland mayor and council, tell us, we must grow, but they tell us all the good things, but pretend it will all be good, and do lie to us, they do not even have the water and other resources to provide for the 2.5 million city they envisage.

This country is run by liars, opportunists, rip off artists and arrogant administrators they do not care for the fate of individual people. All they want is growth for growth sake, to make more profits, and boos their own coffers and powers.

As long as NZers foall for this shit, they fall for the same crap as most of America, and Donald Trump is just another ruthless opportunist exploiting the fall out of the dream that fell to pieces, and he like some rich pricks in NZ, will earn big money, no matter how the tide turns.

  1. A summary of the immigration changes to take place in August 2017:
    Immigration changes: How it will affect workers, Michael Woodhouse touts benefits

    In figures released exclusively to the Herald, a Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment sample of more than 600 skilled migrant category applications being considered as at March 1 found more than two in five would not have met the new income threshold.

    Just 42.5 per cent of applicants earned over the New Zealand median income of $48,859 per year and 14 per cent earned over $75,000.

    Changes to start from August 14:
    • Anyone who will earn less than about $49,000 a year once in New Zealand won’t get a skilled migrant category visa, and permanent residents won’t get points for such jobs.

    • People who will earn more than $73,299 will automatically be classified as highly skilled.

    • The SMC points table, under which individuals claim points towards their residence application, will also be realigned to give more recognition of skill levels in the 30-39 age group and high salary levels.

    • Limiting lower skilled visa holders to a maximum of three years, after which a stand-down period will apply before another visa can be approved.

    • Classifying the partners and children of these visa holders as visitors, meaning they will only gain work visas if they meet requirements in their own right.

    • Ensuring the length of the visa in seasonal occupations aligns with peak labour demand, rather than for 12 months as is presently the case.

    Will be interesting to see whether the government puts nationalism (read: racism) ahead of business (that benefits a lot of kiwis and keeps their 8 universities in the black).

    • Whoops, forgot to include this too:
      Under the new rules, people who are not currently considered to be in skilled employment will be able to claim points for their job if they are earning $35.24 or more per hour.

      Points will also be awarded for skilled New Zealand work experience of 12 months or more.

      And from http://www.stuff.co.nz/business/money/77378686/new-zealand-living-wage-rate-expected-to-increase
      New Zealand living wage rate of $19.80 to kick in July 1

      The 2016 New Zealand Living Wage rate has been set at $19.80 an hour and will come into effect on July 1.

      So… 35.24 divided by 19.80 = 1.8 times … migrants need to be earning a minimum of 1.8 times the living wage, if they intend to stay on in New Zealand without sacrificing their dignity or be entrapped/engaged in shady labour practises or be “adult entertainers” (like clowns for children, but with much skimpier clothing, and they make adults laugh).

      The most (legal) way in my opinion is to work 1.8 times of the 40 hour week, at the minimum wage = 72 hours per week
      = 10 hours 20 minutes per day of a 7 day work week OR
      = 14 hours 24 minutes per day of a 5 day work week.
