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.

Clothing items left at food pantry.

Katherine from Mount Wellington

Someone has left a substantial amount of clothing items at the revolving pantry. With the rain etc it will deteriorate I will pick up what is left tomorrow night and throw away or put anything usable in the wash before taking it up to the Dove shop.

Please this is not the place to leave such items, thanks
Unfortunately I was not in a position to get the clothes out of the elements tonight, but I will try tomorrow evening when I'm back in town. Hopefully they will still be able to be washed and passed on.
We have a revolving pantry outside Sylvia Park school The pantry is at approximately 19 Hamlin Rd, it's visual from the road. Take what you need give what you can.
Food donations greatly appreciated.
Please check the expiry dates, no partially used food or food that needs refrigerating.
💐THANKS💐
Someone asked what is useful for meals? My pantry has salt, sugar, flour, rolled oats, rice or pasta, milk powder, dried beans, vegetables & fruit. Tinned tomatoes, veges, fruit, beans, sardines/tuna, tinned meat, soup. These are all basics that can quickly be turned into a low cost meal. I have a friend who brings in the sauce sachets from takeaway places those are alway helpful for flavour. I bake but that's not an option for a lot of families and whose kid doesn't love lunch box fillers. If you have that "but you liked it last week" purchase sitting unused in your pantry pass it on along with Fruit from your trees Washing powder, toilet paper and dish liquid are also useful additions to any household.
