Poll: Are you planning to hit the bars this weekend?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington's bars will reopen for the first time under alert level 2 on Thursday, and owners are praying for punters to come out in their droves.

Hospitality New Zealand Wellington branch president Matt McLaughlin is fearing for the future of the capital's bars.

"Courtenay Place which, to me, is New Zealand's premier entertainment precinct could be wiped off the face of the Earth in two months, which is really concerning."

There will be strict rules in place, with bar patrons seated, separated by a metre, and served by a single person.

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.

Wanted: Angle Iron

Russell from Paraparaumu

I need a couple of lengths of angle iron for a project. Steel is fine too or even the stuff used to mount shelving to walls. 4 or 5m ideally, any condition.

Happy to collect from anywhere in the district.
