Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

Three white flags will fly from the very top of the Sky Tower this week, to raise awareness about mental health in the construction industry.

SkyCity spokesperson Arron Money said the construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide in the commercial sector in New Zealand.

“Flying the flags from the top of the Sky Tower is our way of acknowledging the problem and empowering the industry to do something about it. The flags are a visual reminder for workers to stop and have the courage to ask a mate if they are alright,” he said.

Fly the Flag is a campaign created by Mates in Construction - an organisation established to combat the high rate of suicide among construction workers in New Zealand.

As a mark of respect for the families who have lost loved ones to suicide, the Sky Tower will also be lit as large ribbon with colours of orange and gold on September 10 to support World Suicide Prevention Day.

Poll: Do you agree with Domino’s new ‘tip your driver’ feature?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Community News

Domino’s is under fire after adding a tipping feature to its online ordering system, with critics saying the pizza chain should “pay staff properly” instead of relying on customer generosity.

But Domino's says the system helps keep its workers safe and there is no obligation to tip.

Domino’s is under fire after adding a tipping feature to its online ordering system, with critics saying the pizza chain should “pay staff properly” instead of relying on customer generosity.

But Domino's says the system helps keep its workers safe and there is no obligation to tip.

The new feature gives customers the option to pay a fixed amount or choose their own tip for their “delivery expert” before completing payment.

The move has been met with outrage on social media where some have said Domino’s should “pay staff properly instead”.

“Thank you so much Tim. It has been such an blessing to have the extra space to sort my life out at an extremely affordable price. Lovely, big, clean, dry and handy container, which I could load straight from car/trailer into my container, made the process fast and efficient. Felt like part of the family, safe and secure. Thank you again. Ta kime.”

The storage containers are clean, tidy and easy to access as you can park right outside them. Tim has been such a pleasure to deal with, he is always happy to accommodate our requests and provides a service above and beyond what we expected. Would highly recommend Storeit4less to anyone needing short or long term storage for personal or business use”.
