    And it starts:


    Air New Zealand has changed its stance on expected job losses as a result of a "bleaker" coronavirus outlook, a union says.

    In an email to staff sent on Monday evening Air New Zealand chief executive Greg Foran said this week it would start the process of materially reducing its workforce due to the impact Covid-19 was having on the airline.

    In an earlier email to staff sent on March 16 Foran said the airline's workforce of 12,500 would reduce by "up to" 30 per cent - equating to about 3750 staff.

    Mate - pull ya head in. These are hard-working, taxpaying Kiwi's who are being dealt a sh1t hand.

    Bit of support for these fullas is required. Even the Socialist Labour-voting idealists.

    I've said it before: s*** happens.

    So one minute son was happy, 80% for 4 weeks and all is reasonable.
    Next he gets payslip and all he got was the govt subsidy - less tax - and been told if no leave well sorry....

    Now they all have 3 weeks leave not by choice at xmas, and he doesn't have the remaining bit so thats stuffed that.

    Child support $520 a month, IRD reduced by $35 a month.
    Mortgage $340, not yet reduced, but will go to $268.

    Fat lot of help that is...

    See?
    S*** happens.

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    We know. As he says, what can he do about it?
    Already pointed that out to the big boss. Who didn't care.

    As that lawyer said, after...so 48 staff take them to employment court, the company hasn't been doing well anyway....so...they walk away and go bankrupt.

    Right...helpful.

    Ditto his bank, first one said Interest only is all he can get
    2nd one said no we not doing mortgage relief
    3rd one and he lost his temper then, said oh we'll get a specilaist to ring you.

    Can't force them.

    See Fletchers....staff 70% off pay, but executives only 15%.

    Yep.

    So sad. As soon as B.M. and prefect join a thread, all sense and reason and compassion goes out of the window.
