Good to see Maccas are helping out with fighting obesity in NZ… but there is more to this – the cost of living and cost of food crisis is to blame. Not Maccas.
People have to eat and the budget each pay cheque only goes so far.
This current Labour government has made so many things in NZ unaffordable by the disgraceful way in which they have run this country over the last 2 terms of government.
It’s a sad state of affairs when a fast food chain offers a cheaper way to eat.
As NZ battles child poverty, cost of living, rampaging inflation, cost of food, escalating health issues, and obesity, it’s once again quite clear that this current Labour gaggle of incompetents have lost sight of what matters, and NZ will continue down a path where the effects of the last 5 years will haunt us for decades to come.
