A budget without vision.

Billions paid by taxpayers for education and students loans and then..... where are decent jobs ?

The government cannot afford to import high tech infrastructure, while at the same time talented, skilled Kiwis export them selves.

The government cannot afford to import high tech infrastructure and at the same time NZmanufactureres are struggling and the wider NZworkforce is on low wages.

The government cannot afford to import high tech infrastructure and at the same time, unemployment is rising and youngsters are without decent jobs.

 The government cannot afford more prisons, but needs to support sustainable production, the private sector, creating more and better jobs.

Without decent job creation the drain of the wider population and wallets continuous and it will be only a matter of time until the society collapses and we see unrest coming from the wider population.
