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.

Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

MULTICULTURAL TREE PLANTING:
Saturday 18th July 2020, 10:30am-1:30pm
Waiwhakareke Natural Heritage Park (across from the main entrance to the Hamilton Zoo), Brymer Road, Hamilton
EarthDiverse, the Waikato Interfaith Council, the Waikato Multicultural Council, GoEco, Kaivolution, Tui 2000, Friends of Waiwhakareke, the Bahá’í Community, Waikato Biodiversity Forum, Artmakers Trust and the Hamilton City Council are co-organising a Community-wide tree planting event to take place in Hamilton on Saturday 18 July 2020, 10:30am-1:30pm (Rain Date in case of absolutely awful weather will be on Saturday 1 August). Bring a spade or shovel, gumboots, appropriate outdoor weather gear (e.g. hat, rain gear, sunglasses), some gardening gloves, water and a big smile. Don't forget to bring your friends and family!
If you don’t want to dig there are other ways to help out (like bringing a small food donation, or helping with setting out and serving a light lunch). A light lunch will be served (courtesy of Kaivolution, GoEco, WIFCO, EarthDiverse, the Bahá’í Community and others). Please bring your own plates, cutlery or mugs in order to minimise waste.
Make sure you are there for the group orientation from 10:30-11:00am. We'll plant from about 11:00-12:30pm. 100 people would mean planting about 5-10 saplings each.
Planting will be followed by a free sponsored light lunch with the help of GoEco, Kaivolution, the Waikato Interfaith Council, EarthDiverse and the Hamilton City Council.
Our annual community tree planting event is family friendly, free, fun and open to the public. All are welcome to attend.
Mark this date in your diaries now. Come and work together and help offset our carbon usage!
