A great weekend of voting in The Trusts Million Dollar Mission!
Congratulations to the following community organisations who reached their funding targets:
French Bay Yacht Club - $14,905
Save Cornwallis Old Wharf - $11,855
Netball Waitakere - $18,505
There is still lots of funding available for community organisations doing some fantastic work in West Auckland. Vote every day at www.milliondollarmission.co.nz...
The old saying about colds and flu, "three days coming, three days suffering and three days going" would support a 10 days sick leave. That also tends to fit better with covid-19 to worry about. And of course employers will squeal but possibly without real justification. If a worker catches flu or other virus then goes to work and infects five or ten others then it is clearly better if sick leave was used promptly. There is nothing worse than the stalwart worker who means well going to work sneezing over everyone else. I think perhaps a doctors certificate may be wise for longer than four days off. Then of course we have to sadly accept the few who will misuse their sick leave, something no decent person would ever do. I would go further, if a person taking sick leave was seen at the footy match then they should expect to be fired. It is dishonest and we don't like to employ such people.
If I decide to vote National I will vote for euthanasia. If I vote for Labour I 'may' vote against it. I don't fancy our chances of top class hospital care if they face short funding yet again even without another covid-19 wave.. Health care has not recovered from the last National innings and remains under funded. Even privatisation has been sniffed at in the past. Is that a possibility? The choice of lives saved versus the economy exposes serious and sensitive moral values. Covid-19 doesn't have morals.
While COVID-19 has had a big impact on plans for this year, we still have some fantastic opportunities for you to practice your reo (language) this Māori Language Week. Find out how by clicking on 'Read More' below.
