The House Price Problem 房屋价格问题

ACT believes that the cost of housing is unacceptably high. Auckland has a significant housing shortage. The price of an average house in Auckland is nearly ten times the income of an average household. Internationally, three times the median income is considered ‘affordable’. The high price of houses means mortgage payments and rents are higher. Household budgets feel the pressure.

行动党认为当前的房屋价格已经远远超过了大多数人可以接受的范围。奥克兰的房屋数量严重短缺,然而一栋房屋的均价几乎是一个家庭平均收入的十倍,远远高于国际定义的收入中位数三倍的可支付价格。高房价意味着更高的房屋贷款与租房费用,这让每个家庭都倍感压力。

The Prison Population Problem  监狱人口问题

ACT believes the prison population is too high. Recently the number of people incarcerated in New Zealand exceeded 10,000 for the first time. There has been a small reduction in reoffending but it is far below the government’s targets. To paraphrase Bill English, this is a “moral and fiscal failure”.

行动党认为监狱人口数量非常庞大。近来新西兰监狱服刑人数首次超过一万人。累犯的人数虽微量减少但仍远低于政府预期。正如总理Bill English先生所言:“这是道德与财力欠缺惹得祸”。

Over two­thirds of people starting a prison sentence in New Zealand have been sentenced before. That means a

Parent and Grandparent Visitor Visa Amendment Bill to Five or Ten Years

延长父母及祖父母团聚签证至五年或十年

 

New Zealand is a country of immigrants with a large percentage of Kiwis being born overseas.

新西兰作为一个移民大国,其大部分人口构成都来自与海外移民。

 

However, since Immigration New Zealand has temporarily closed and reduced the quota for the Parent category, fewer Kiwis can be reunited with their family in New Zealand. The new policy relating to parents gaining NZ residence effectively gives no priority to processing applications

ACT announces better pay for the best teachers

行动党宣布为优秀教师涨薪

 

Good teachers help children grow, develop, and reach their full potential which is vital to their future success.

在孩子成长、发展的过程中,优秀的教师对其潜力的发掘至关重要,这决定了孩子在未来是否能够取得成功。

Unfortunately, because of union contracts, teachers hit maximum pay after ten years, schools can’t reward successful teachers, and teaching is not regarded as a strong career choice for our brightest graduates.

然而,由于教师工会合同的限制,教师在执教满十年后工资将达到收入上限,学校不会因为教师的优秀而给予教师额外的报酬。所以对现在最优秀的毕业生来说,教师并不是一个被看好的职业选择。

Right now the best teacher earns the same as the worst teacher. Graduates are


税收

Tax. It’s Your Money.

税收,来自纳税人的钱。

 

ACT’s fundamental belief is that the Government should spend less of your money. You should keep more of it. You earned it, after all. That goes for both personal income tax that you pay on your salary, and the tax that business owners pay in company tax.

行动党的基本减税信念是政府应该少花纳税人的钱。纳税人应该自由地支配自己的劳动所得,而非支付高额的税收,让政府决定如何支配。我们的新政将使得个人所得税和公司税的上限均得到大幅度削减。

The Government’s accounts are in surplus. The tax taken from New Zealanders exceeds the amount Government is spending – the Government is
