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.

Rangiora's growth inspires council to work on charming, modern town plan

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

“Charismatic and contemporary’’ is how the Waimakariri District Council hopes Rangiora will be viewed into the next decade and beyond.

The Rangiora Town Centre Strategy – Blueprint to 2030+ – seeks to support the town's projected rapid growth from its current population of 18,000 to 30,000 by 2048.

Rangiora is the local service centre for more than 60 per cent of the Waimakariri district, and with the continued need to keep up with the population, the council has been investigating ways to increase opportunities for residential and business growth.
