Minimum wage

Ronald from Maxron Associates

The current minimum wage is $17.70 an hour set to go to $18.90 on April 1. I'm curious, what others think about that. Are you an employer or senior manager with hiring responsibility's. Will the increase make you change your hiring options. Will you down size, will you absorb the cost, … View moreThe current minimum wage is $17.70 an hour set to go to $18.90 on April 1.

Will you down size, will you absorb the cost, will you restructure and shed staff. What are your thoughts.

Nevertheless, taken to the extreme, this view leads to consequences that you’ll regret later in life. Live in a way that others respect will respect you is a better philosophy

An update on widening SH16 petition which closes tomorrow.

Lindsay from Huapai - Kumeu

10 days ago we only had just under 800 signatures so I emailed all the Rodney local board members to see if they would give it a push through their mailing lists.

Not one of them bothered to reply or give any assistance whatsoever. So on Monday I emailed Chris Penk, our local MP. He rang me within two hours thanking me for running the petition and indicated that he would spread the word, and since then we now have just under 1300 signatures, so well done Chris.
As you will now be aware the government has neglected our area in its latest infrastructure rollout so it is up to us to keep the pressure on before the election.

Dangerous loading tactics from trucks on our roads🚛

Far too often, in fact it's now a daily occurrence; there are trucks on our roads with incorrectly secured loads or worse, loads that aren't even secured.
The latest incident I have witnessed was at the mini construction site at the corner of Lincoln, Swanson and Great North road intersection - where Henderson Lock Services used to be.
A truck, fully loaded with rubble, came out, turned right onto Great North Road and then straight down Lincoln Road. The top layer which was well over the legal limit, was flying off in all directions and all of us had to hold back as to not be showered with any stones etc ...
The driver was totally oblivious and she kept on driving even though people were trying to flag her down.
I couldn't see the company name on the truck as a van in front of me blocked my view, but it was raining sand, stones and pebbles.
I honestly thought that all loads had to be covered in case of dangerous items i.e. stones, rubbish, wood etc ... flying off and causing accidents (or worse, a death) on the roads behind them.
Apparently one of the NZTA rules for loose bulks loads is, "Loose bulk loads being transported in a vehicle without a tarpaulin fitted should at no time reach higher than 100mm below any side of the vehicle"
NZTA goes onto to say, "Loose bulk loads should be tarped, netted or sheeted as appropriate whenever there is a risk of load shedding due to wind action or movement"
This also applies to the average Joe Blow on his/her way to the rubbish tips with their dangerously overloaded and unsecured trailers.
The amount of garden rubbish we come across on the roads or even MDF or rubbish bags (the list goes on) beggars belief.
Cover your truck & trailer and load folks.
Keep us safe and alive.
