Anyway back on topic. Definitely no Land of Milk and Honey. The extra spending on mental health further signs of 'excessive strain' in the community . So much in the work place is around
mental health issues. Too often around work issues (Australians being among the most hours worked in the world) But also insecurity of work. Not to mention bullying .

Still not hearing how you're able to judge someone's visa status just by looking at them...

being called for accountability, with ideological bias constantly challenged.

Probably the worst thing being the delusional thinking of thoughts of superiority. All so sad.

Probably because there are in excess of a million workers on temp visa's in Australia (was 1.5 + million, with
Corona likely declined) As well as being employed in large numbers, not speaking a lot of English with a 'foreman'
translating. But don't worry yourself, I accept to difficult to resonate with you. That's fine.

"Fluency"?!? You have a hard time composing grammatically-correct sentences:

"The extra spending on mental health further signs of 'excessive strain' in the community ."

"I accept to difficult to resonate with you."


I suspect we have a Russian troll-farm-bot here...

Oh boohoo. Yes fluency. I don't necessary labour over grammar on a forum, but in debate and defense of what I write, Not the nit picking of the presumed
nationality, spelling or cheap attempts at under mining another, simply because lodge an argument to support position.

A simple knee on ground and recall of recent landed status should allow us all to move on.

Yea I notice that, even in New Zealand especially in the construction industry the average work hours per week is 45-50. However it is also one of the least productive countries. What gets done in the UK and Ireland in a 38-40 hour week gets done in a 45-50 hour week here. The idea that more work hours equals higher productivity has been proven to be false time and time again. All that happens when faced with a longer work week is that people spread it out to avoid fatigue. There is a reason the average work week in some of the most productive countries is 36-40.

You would think with all the good weather in this part of the world they would want to enjoy it lol.

Hence possibly happy days for 'your friend'.
