“Before John Key talks about the piddling tax cuts he plans for low and middle income families today he needs to explain why he only pays 2.8% of his income on tax while a minimum wage worker pays 28% tax,” says MANA Movement leader Hone Harawira.
“How is it that workers are paying tax rates ten times higher than the Prime Minister?”
“If we all paid just 2.8% tax the country would collapse, so how does the PM get away with it?”
“Why are the likes of cleaners, fast-food workers, hotel workers, hospital staff and security guards all heavily subsidising the lifestyles of the super-rich?”
