The Defence Force, in collaboration with WINZ, is pairing young job seekers with potential employers in dire need of staff. As part of its Limited Service Volunteer Programme, a group of young people are fed, housed, and trained, ready to hit the job market. After a morning running through different work scenarios using a VR headset, the trainees met with potential employers at a careers expo. Reporter Kate Green and cameraman Samuel Rillstone have more.
"Its make your own news Monday" according to Capt. Dave on WZTA. Neil comes to the studio and it is unlocked, plus WINZ wants him to cut a spot. Elvis Jr. drops in on Neil and The Bird. Neil discovers an E.J. cart missing, because someone took it for his show on INZ.
A landlord wrote to me the other day saying how many more tenants these days are applying for rentals, and on the application form are putting under proof of income, ‘WINZ'. Her point was, since when was a WINZ benefit, which is supposed to be a short term solution for people in difficult circumstances, since when has that become an income? It's supposed to be a benefit, which you're on for a short time. But she was saying how many single mums with only one or two kids are going into four bedroom homes courtesy of a government grant or benefit, and that perhaps the real housing crisis lies in the fact too many rentals are being subsidised by government benefits, which allow small no income families to go into large homes that they actually don't need. And then we hear about the solo dad who said the other day that WINZ actually don't want to help you get off the benefit. A “Bay of Plenty father with four kids aged four to 10 told Newshub he started looking for part-time work a few months ago…” He has.. “a background in fencing, shearing and forestry and applied for two part-time roles. However, the jobs required equipment so he applied to WINZ for the Transition to Work grant to buy the gear he needed… a chainsaw, hammer, gumboots..” etc that he'd need to do the work. “But he said he was rejected because he didn't meet the requirements of needing to work 30 hours or more a week,” it was reported. He said the message he got from WINZ through this experience was that it's easier to just give up and stay on a benefit. He said there's no incentive to really help people into work. Worse still, he didn't hear from WINZ for months he said, until Newshub contacted them and isn't that too often the case? Unless a journalist rings up or the issue gets into the media, there's no action on anything. It shouldn't be that way. Part of WINZ's role is to help people get into work with support grants for things like equipment if needed. And yet this solo Dad was left floundering and without support. He said WINZ should take a “look in the mirror at their policies and see if they're actually helping Kiwis get off the benefit.” National agrees there are too many roadblocks to getting people off benefits, it says Labour has allowed ‘benefit dependency to increase at a time businesses are desperate for staff.' Even the Greens recognised it's not helpful if agencies like WINZ aren't enabling people to get off benefits and ‘meet their aspirations'. Look, it's so refreshing to hear of people wanting to get off a benefit, and having aspirations, that it pains me that WINZ may be standing in the way of this. Surely the system can be flexible enough and bold enough to recognise decent aspiration and back it? How else do we break the back of benefit dependency, if those in the very agencies dishing it out aren't prepared to help people stand on their own two feet and come off it? There is a disturbing entrenchment happening in regard to attitudes to benefits and that is that it's just easier to give people a hand out, when the focus really should be on giving people a hand up.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Imagine waking up one morning and realising the door to almost every public service was shut to you. No matter how hard you tried, you simply couldn't get in. That's the experience for many New Zealanders who have been left behind as the world has moved online. So how many are being digitally excluded, and how damaging is this in a society so singularly focused on moving everything online? Today, Sharren Wilson, who has struggled to be helped by WINZ, and Sacha Green, national advisor to the Citizens Advice Bureau, join Damien to discuss what can be done to avoid leaving people behind. Follow The Front Page on iHeartRadio or wherever you get your podcasts. You can read more about this and other stories in the New Zealand Herald, online at nzherald.co.nz, or tune in to news bulletins across the NZME network.

Hi Leutchen, In der heutigen Folge rede ich wirklich ehrlich übers Versagen - based on a true story. Enjoy ;) Edit: Oke, also die Beschreibung oben ist viel zu knapp und wird der Tiefgründigkeit der Folge nicht gerecht - mhh vielleicht übertreibe ich gerade auch ein wenig. Auf jeden fall möchte ich noch ergänzen, dass Versagen manchmal Pech und manchmal ein Mangel an harter Arbeit ist. Und ich glaube auch nicht das Dinge einfach zufällig passieren, weil man ganz lieb Gott darum bittet (aber helfen tut es schon). Also egal ob ihr die Folge hört, Erfolg ist harte Arbeit (!!) aber auch immer ein bisschen Glück. Ergo wenns mal nicht so läuft wie man es sich erhofft, obwohl man alles gegeben hat - “Only two things can get you through this: that's patience and persistence.” Winz

Neil has invited young fans to visit him in the studio, and today's guest is a woman!

People are still waiting for their Miami Vice jackets, the sound tunnel, The Bird, and Stan stops in to check out Linda.
A homeless mother with seven young children says she had to pitch a tent in a park during a storm after Work and Income told her it couldn't help. Mariska Kruger, from Napier, says despite the agency knowing she had a seven-week-old baby and nowhere to go, she was repeatedly told there was nothing it could do. RNZ investigative journalist Anusha Bradley filed this report.
Talk up Tuesday on WINZ. Lots of great mail including some catalogs addressed to Kathy "Wild" West. Neil is seeking a travel companion for his upcoming trip to Hawaii.

A homeless mother with six young children and a newborn had to pitch a tent during a storm after she said Work and Income declined to help her. Mariska Kruger, from Napier, says the agency knew about the baby and her plan to sleep in a tent, but was told repeatedly there was nothing it could do. Work and Income denies that happened. A member of the public who found the Kruger family camping, took them in and helped find emergency accomodation. That person was Hawke's Bay counsellor Lisa Cunliffe, who spoke to Corin Dann.
Neil discusses the New York Times Magazine article "Can Miami Save Itself...?" He starts off the show being serious, but then Glen starts bringing in the "Numbers". Neil got a 9, and Stan Major spends most of the 2 - 3 on Neil's show. Rick and Suds claim that Glen "The Bird" Hill had lunch with Lee Fowler over the weekend. The WINZ management thinks that Geoff Charles will be stiff competition for Neil.

Songs include the world premiere of "I Want to be Don Johnson", and "National Brotherhood Week". Callers include a crazy lady, and maybe Fruit Cake doing a voice, Bits and bonus minutes.
The Government's books are supposedly in better shape than expected. The Finance Minister revealed a deficit, a business would call that a trading loss, of only $4.6 billion. Mmmm...we lost $4.6 billion. That said, the Budget picked a number more like $15 billion, so it could have been a lot worse. But one thing caught my ear in the announcement. Kainga Ora properties (what we used to call Housing New Zealand) are on the books as assets. But is it really truthful to call a property portfolio that LOSES money an asset? Minus $20-30m a year sounds more like a liability to me. And that's AFTER it sucked nearly a billion out of WINZ in rent subsidies. Of course, we need to have cheap housing, but doesn't expanding Kainga Ora's portfolio just feed an ever-growing liability for the taxpayer? And while I'm on this point, the Government says the value of all its property and equipment is up by $27 billion. That's land, buildings, state highways, electricity generation and railways. Land can be sold, so it's an asset, power stations make profits, so they're assets. But roads, hospitals, railways all cost more than they bring in, so aren't they liabilities too? Look, I know I'm being pedantic here. Anyway, things could be a lot worse. We could be Greece, or Italy, or another European debt basket case. Carry on borrowing at the rate we are though, and that won't take long.
Neil with Tom Jicha talking about radio on WINZ. Steve Kane is sitting out his 3-month non-compete with WNWS but gets back on the radio by calling Neil to promote his move to WIOD in July. Greg Budell (sitting out like Kane), and Bill Tanner call in with exceptional comments.

Neil is fed up with the lack of good calls and takes the show outside to the lawn of the WINZ studios. Instead of callers, Neil talks to the people who can find the studio. Neil gives away WINZ swag.

Entrepreneurailsim runs in the Serville Family. David's brother is well known for starting Serville's Hair Salon, but who knew his brother created not one but 5 franchise businesses? David is a driven entrepreneur with expertise in the franchising and service sectors. As the founder and CEO of CC Group NZ, he has been instrumental in catapulting Kiwi brands such as Crewcut (lawn mowing services and franchises), Crewcare (commercial cleaning services and franchises, Chemcare (asbestos removal), CC Training Academy (industry training), and CC Facilities Management (facilities services) to new and exciting heights. However, as all entrepreneurs know, there's a danger of getting drawn down a rabbit hole, enticed by the bright, sparkly things that we all love. So, how do you avoid these pitfalls & make sure you don't leave money on the table? In 1991, David started a lawn mowing business with a business partner and a small business loan from the predecessor to WINZ. Almost 30 years later, that small business is now an established group of businesses. In his typically understated way, David talks with me & takes us through his journey from that small business loan to a 'not so overnight success' group of companies that now employs 100s of staff. He shares with us how he learned from Amway, why he decided he had to learn about numbers, his relationship with his 3 wives, 5 kids & 4 grandchildren & how he avoids going down the rabbit hole. David also shares his top 3 tips on how you can maintain clarity & focus.

A 9.51am on September 1 2014 a balaclava-clad man stormed into the Work and Income New Zealand office in Ashburton and opened fire. In just 61 seconds he gunned down and killed two women and almost murdered two more. Then he calmly walked back out of the office, unlocked his bike and peddled away into the distance - leaving bloody carnage and chaos in his wake. The man was Russell John Tully and his horrendous, deliberate and planned actions that day shook New Zealand. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
