New Zealand is in the midst of a cost of living crisis. Rents are up, mortgage rates are on the rise, the cost of food is up, petrol is up - but wages aren't keeping up.

Labour’s wasteful spending and war on business have pushed up the price of everything. Prices have gone up 6.9%, and wages just 2.6%, so you can buy less with your money. Worse, new taxes mean working New Zealanders have even less money. The squeezed middle is getting poorer.
