Social Security in New Zealand – Increasingly Threatened and Dismantled, A Blog Researching and Revealing The Truth
This Blog researches and reports on serious issues with social security and new “welfare reforms” affecting beneficiaries in New Zealand. The primary focus is on persons with health issues, injuries and disability, and how they are increasingly affected by draconian, unfair policies, questionable processes, ever changing assessment criteria and other measures the Ministry of Social Development and their main department Work and Income New Zealand (WINZ) now imposes on them. ‘nzsocialjusticeblog2013’ does not present individual stories of affected persons, but takes a more general, wider view of things. We endeavour to reveal facts behind policies, developments and practices, that are not widely known and not usually covered by media and other sources.
