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.

Realstate Boom in Taranaki

Don from Whalers Gate

The property market is running hot, multi offers, cash buyers and free valuation of your property with no obligations.
The dribble just keeps coming from the Realstate Representatives.
I just viewed the latest Daily News Property (Weekly) and found more property have sold than the properties advertised for sale in this edition.
I feel that Realstate Representatives are miss leading the public and trying to beat their drum to keep their heads above water. Of cause the market is volatile because there is not much stock on the market. I also cannot believe how many representative are in the market selling realstate or involved in property management.
Realstate Companies are advertising for more sales representative.
This is unbelievable.
I sick of reading all the miss leading information about realstate in Taranaki and getting realstate flyers in my letter box.
It is about time Realstate needs to get their act together and show all their cards and back up with graphs showing the true facts on the market in Taranaki.
We would all appreciate the true facts not miss leading statements that is being used as a tool to get listings.
