What has been one positive thing to come out of your time in lockdown?

The Team Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours,

We hope you're all coping well during these trying times in lockdown.

We'd love to know how you've found the lockdown, for a story to run in the Dominion Post and on Stuff, by answering these two questions:

1. What is the one thing you are most looking forward to post-lockdown?
(Could be fish 'n' chips, walking on the beach, or giving your mum a hug)

2. What has been one positive thing to come out of your time in lockdown? (Such as losing weight, learning how to cook bread, or spending more time with the kids)

If you'd like to be included, please email me at paul.harper@stuff.co.nz

Thank you, and stay safe!

Paul

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.

Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?
