My wife works as a house maid at a hotel on minimum wage. She finished last evening and then drove to Pikes Peak (shall we call it) as a driver guide getting back around mid night. In the morning her alarm goes off at 6 as she has to wash the van and go off to work again.
If your passengers stay at the Hilton Queenstown you park your bus 30 minutes walk away before you drive to Milford. It isn't the walk that is the problem but it cuts into sleeping time. Some years ago (20 or more) when questioned on bus parking the deputy mayor (owned a transport company) snorted "do we owe them a living?". A female driver says that as she leaves Cromwell her stomach gets upset because she doesn't know where she is to park.
So that's the Tourism industry: a prop for the property /construction/ finance industries.
The other issue is a self esteem one where you see "your" country over run by foreigners (bus drivers from China). Self esteem (I think) is the difference between the working classes/elites and response to "diversity".
Kim Hill, The Panel, "Labour", Professor this and that etc, etc don't get that.

Two Taranaki tribes then based in Wellington, Ngati Tama and Ngati Mutunga ki Poneke, hijacked a European vessel in 1835 and had themselves—a total of 900 people—delivered to Chatham Islands. There they takahi'd or walked the land to claim it
Merry Christmas.
