Sharon from Te Atatu South

I think it's hollyhock. =D Looks a bit like hibiscus - but the leaves are different (heart-shaped or figleaf shaped - they look a bit like whau leaves) and the flowers are smaller - about half the size of a hibiscus flower and almost just as beautiful!!!!!!!! =D Heheheheheh!!!!!!!! =D Enjoy. … View moreI think it's hollyhock. =D Looks a bit like hibiscus - but the leaves are different (heart-shaped or figleaf shaped - they look a bit like whau leaves) and the flowers are smaller - about half the size of a hibiscus flower and almost just as beautiful!!!!!!!! =D Heheheheheh!!!!!!!! =D Enjoy. =D

Should council agency staff get big pay bonuses ? - Reply

Matt from Henderson

Hi Neighbours, Is working for a council agency public service, or should it involve pay bonuses for doing a job well done. Panuku Development has paid $451,000 to 38 of its staff, angering the mayor Phil Goff. Are bonuses appropriate ?

Hi Neighbours, Is working for a council agency public service, or should it involve pay bonuses for doing a job well done. Panuku Development has paid $451,000 to 38 of its staff, angering the mayor Phil Goff. Are bonuses appropriate ?

My own response is this. That is a huge lot of money to be giving as bonuses to this particular council agency. Look, at any work place, there should be some work incentive for working so many work hours at any job or workplace for the employees or the job at general I understand that. I used to work at Spotlight, I used to get a christmas bonus with my pay once every year. This was with all Spotlight stores in NZ and in Australia. This was our little perk once every year we employees and the employers get towards December. I don't know what other stores get here in NZ, but I am sure everyone would get the same, not sure though.

Instead of taking bonuses away from work places or any agencies, look at what the MP's at Wellington earn and see if what they earn is actually much more than what the average worker is earning in the way of bonuses.

What do others think?

SO, I've been having fun on this summer day. =D Enjoy!!!!!!!! =D

🧡 Someone told me yesterday that we are going to die one day. I thought, True!

🧡 Someone told me yesterday that we are going to die one day. I thought, True!

🧡But then I thought, why do so many people not use that as motivation to reach for the stars and get that dream job, travel, money, love. You know, find their HAPPY PLACE!

🧡Its fear of change, I know it because I have overcome change a lot and great things have happened. That's why I love to help people move forward in life.

🧡 Everyday is a blessing, to hug my daughter, to kiss my husband, to laugh with my dad, to high five my teen.

🧡Everyday will be different, change is inevitable, people will come and go.

🧡Make your everyday count! Create a happy change, create a legacy, move forward and be happy doing it🤗🥰
