John Key’s recent stint at the Big Gay Out wasn’t all target marketing and niche political branding. He also had a run in with living-wage campaigners who took him to task for his government’s poor response to minimum wage earners and asked if he could live on the minimum wage.
And what was his response? “Not easily, no, ha ha.” Yeah John it’s a real laugh trying to get by on the minimum wage.
It reminds me of Key’s dismissive response on youth rates:
Or his joke about how a $28 a week tax cut was worthless (that’s about three hours on the minimum wage after tax)
He’s a real funny guy that Key.
