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.

Do you rent in Auckland?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, the struggle to find affordable accommodation in the city isn't getting any easier is it? A recent flatmates wanted ad is offering a spot in a "bright and sunny" central Auckland apartment, for $220 a week - but you'd be sleeping in a corner of the living room.


The cordoned off space is listed as being suitable for a woman “looking for a place to crash”. You can read more about it, here. Would you consider a rental like this? What's the most extreme rental ad you've come across in Auckland?
