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.

Preferably a farm with a large rabbit population. Honey is a terrific hunter. She is a greyhound, beardie, huntaway cross. She is a gorgeous wee girl, about 18 months old, speyed, but she was mistreated as a puppy and is often unresponsive to commands so needs some training. I cant keep her on my small, lifestyle block property - she's constantly taking off. I've had her for a year, but have sadly decided I need to rehome her.

Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home.
