Increasing Demand for Caskets in New Zealand.
Peter, who says he works in the funeral industry, spoke in front of the crowd gathered to support Counterspin outside the court in Christchurch today.
“Last month, August, the sales of caskets [were] 40% above our budget.”
“I’ve been watching the government website, they provide some statistics on all-cause of mortality every week.”
“25% above the long term average of around 600 people in New Zealand dying every week, so currently at around 750.”
“From my experience in the industry, there are a lot more deaths happening than should be.”
