Beggars

Kathryn from Silverdale

It’s now the fourth time I have been approached at the atm machine across from the Hillcrest warehouse, asking for money, coming up right behind me, today asking for money to get to Auckland, by a young man who I saw get out of a car and make a beeline for me, he had a female friend as driver. I felt intimidated when I said sorry no, and he left with a catch you later.
Won’t be using these shops again.

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.
