Anne Tolley to outsource social services to Serco
The minister of social development Anne Tolley is going to outsource social services to a British military contractor Serco. New Zealand’s social services could now be outsourced to other foreign defence and aerospace contractors like Northrup Grumman that designed the Apollo lander for the moon landings.
The most vulnerable New Zealanders could be at the mercy of military contractors In this corporate utopian society aimed at making huge profits at tax payers expense.
Reaganomic’s theory of outsourcing, selling off state assets and allowing business to self-regulate industry as an economic theory that never worked, the United States turned from being the biggest creditor nation on earth to the biggest debtor nation. New Zealand is fast becoming one of the biggest debtor nations from Neo-Liberal agendas like outsourcing social welfare and selling state assets.
Refuse a state house at your peril
Applicants are being too picky will be removed from the waiting list under stricter new rules that come in today
From today, turning down a state house more than once without good reason will result in removal from the waiting list for up to three months.
The stricter policy for prospective tenants was promised by Social Housing Minister Paula Bennett last year.
The 4500 applicants on waiting lists nationwide will also have to consider moving further away from their place of work under the new policy.
In the past, applicants for a state house could choose just one suburb they wanted to live in. They could also turn down three offers of a house for any reason.
Applicants now have to nominate at least three suburbs they are willing to live in. And if they turn down more than one house, they could be removed from the social housing register for 13 weeks.....[ ]
