Please choose someone else's suburb for your flight path, we're getting sick of being woken up every night. And no I would never have bought here if I'd known it was to become under a flight path. Why was there no consultation?

It will be available for 12 weeks from June 8 for anyone who has lost their job due to the impact of Covid-19 since March 1. It will pay $490 a week to those who lost full-time work and $250 for part-time. The payment will also not be taxed. "The Government’s priority is making sure people are in work and able to find new work if their job has been impacted by Covid," Mr Robertson said. "That’s why we made a $1.6 billion investment in the Budget to help people retrain. The Budget also invested to create practical jobs for New Zealanders through environmental work, construction and infrastructure. This payment will help Kiwis as they make these transitions." Mr Robertson compared the scheme to the Job Loss Cover payment, which was introduced by the previous Government during the Canterbury earthquakes. He also said it had similarities to the ReStart package for workers who lost their jobs in the Global Financial Crisis. "We know these schemes reduced the impact on people who lost their jobs due to those shocks. They show how important it is for people to have a safety net to support themselves and their families as they look for new work or retrain.
"As we move from the respond and recover phases of our Covid response, and towards rebuilding the economy, we have an opportunity to reset some of the foundations of the safety net for working New Zealanders."

Immigration

David from Glen Eden

I am well aware of the need and much of the history of NZ immigration. I read that 100000 Americans have shown interest in living here.

I read that 100000 Americans have shown interest in living here. It seems to me that little planning or foresight has been done when we end up with grid locked roads, under funded hospitals, not enough teachers, and a shortage of houses. Add to that a council blind to climate change and we have a critical water shortage and in some parts sewerage on the once beautiful beaches. Most if not all of the world's problems now stem from over population and better management would help. More people needs more resources.
