Poll: The big burger debate

Julie Kaio Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hey neighbours,
Our non-meat-eating readers can rejoice, Air New Zealand is now offering the meat-free Impossible Burger to its business class flights from LA to Auckland.
But what does this mean for New Zealand farmers who contribute to New Zealand's main industry?
Some kiwis think the airline should be promoting our homegrown lamb and beef instead.
In a tweet, National MP Nathan Guy wrote, "Disappointing to see Air NZ promoting a GE substitute meat burger on its flights to the USA. We produce the most delicious steaks & lamb on the planet - GMO & hormone free. The national carrier should be pushing our premium products and helping sell NZ to the world."
What do you think?
Have you tried the Impossible Burger, and if so how does it compare to the real deal?

Lock-outs, blockades as bus driver pay dispute escalates

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Did anyone try catching a bus today?
A pay dispute between Waikato bus drivers and Go Bus has escalated after 20 months of negotiations.
Buses were running on a Saturday schedule during Monday's protests.
The situation escalated when First Union members announced the wouldn't take fares on Waikato urban routes on Monday.
Go Bus said it would lock out workers and operate reduced services.
Drivers then blocked buses at the Transport Centre and Higgins Rd depot. They've said protests will continue as long as workers are locked out.
