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.

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.

Mischeivous political reporting

David from Glen Eden

Quote "Coronavirus: How isolation breach trumps National's privacy botchup." Such is the heading of an obvious Nat supporter. The two so called botch ups are in no way related. The isolation breach was by a person breaking the law and who surely knew better. Instructions in writing are given to all those in quarantine and are quite clear. His breaking the law is not the government's failure. National's privacy botchup was clearly intended to undermine the government and it back fired. Just like Mr Woodhouse's claim who made serious mischievous inventions.

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

This is the changing face of housing in our suburbs as determined by Auckland's Unitary Plan. But this pioneering project in Sandringham is for renters, not buyers.
