    Well, more of this and people will get more racial....just like in Russia.

    Such a sad and pathetic state this world is in....makes me wonder who's sitting in a corporate chair holding a glass of wine and smoking a cigar paid for by the suffering of billions of people around the world....
    Meh....

    Great, I think our local ANZ there is only one person that speaks English I can understand with no hassle as it is.

    You are more than welcome to some of our Auckland foreigners pctek, I am sure they would love the Deep South.

    Its called Globalisation.

    I read a book last year and there are only a few jobs that are imune to it.

    Hairdressing and car repairs.

    It said that just about everything else can be outsourced !

    Same here almost everyone in my ANZ branch are bad English speaking immigrants. A lady who has been doing our business banking for years has retired and has been replaced with someone I cant understand properly.
    Surely it cant be racist to expect finance managers etc to to fully comprehend English or am I out of step with society.
    I took French at school for 3 yrs blardy years ago, my French is s@#$% and. I wouldn't try and get a job in a bank in France its an insult to them
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.

    Get your s*** together every other vegetable.

    My jobs not outsourced yet I'm a Carpenter and a Joiner by trade currently working as the latter, thankfully I did my trade in England and have a double trade so have been able to switch back and forth over the years depending on which was paying more or had a high workload.

    There's not much kiwis left anyway, they may have to get workers from overseas to bring the kiwis back!

    If you don't like the Bank's policy shift your business elsewhere and tell them why. theonly prob;em is that all these greedy banking companies are doing the same.
    A pox on all of them.

    I'm not an ANZ customer so can't comment that it COULD keep my bank fees down??

    I am however a Westpac customer and do wonder if job losses will be announced by Westpac. Hopefully not but if they do it will be announced to keep costs down, meanwhile the bank announces a $NZ350 Million profit. Didn't ANZ make alot more than that?
