    No, too many overpaid management staff cost cutting and "increasing productivity" and not enough well-paid skilled workers actually doing important jobs like routine maintenance.
    You've got me here.

    I don't believe that "overpaid management staff and cost cutting" should be in the same sentence, to be followed by increasing productivity.

    We've got plenty of well-paid skilled workers too, frustrated by BS from the Public Service and Government.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    Thats why NZ had such a relatively high standard of living in the early 50's , simply because the other countries were broke & had to rebuild everything , so NZ seemed to be doing well .
