What is it about Paula Bennett whose blood belts though her arteries and seems to end up coagulating in her brain.
Our Tourism Minister’s recommending we say thanks for service with our wallets, tipping those who provide it.
She argues people come to this country to experience our beautiful landscapes and beaches and they leave talking about the wonderful people they meet here.
Now few could argue with that, but many of them leave, refreshed that we’re not a culture clutching the begging bowl.
The point I’m making is the US system is not reliable and the Kiwi version is. … If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. In the end, we all just want to be appreciated.

I don’t know of a single piece written in support of Bennett’s proposal. She has been in the bubble too long, and lost touch with the values of NZ.
NZ, don't move to tipping. $2-3/hr for working hospo is cold comfort when foot traffic sucks, and/or the economy is crap.
