Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Thankyou to everyone who took the time to submit on the Auckland Council's Emergency Budget. It received the highest number of responses since the SuperCity was formed, with 34,915 submissions across Auckland and 1,545 from Kaipātiki.
Here are the results of the rates increase question for the Kaipātiki Local Board area (bar graphs), and the whole of Auckland (pie chart).
For Kaipātiki, the top bar graph includes all feedback received; the second bar graph excludes pro forma submissions (feedback forms produced by groups).
Even though Council specifically asked about 2.5% vs 3.5% increase, you were able to give feedback on any percentage, and the results reflect that many people did.
