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.
