Had a conversation with someone last night and they mentioned what a great idea it would be to be able to use the empty Placemakers building on Kapiti Road for community activities such as an indoor winter farmers and craft market along with any other initiatives that would benefit the community like a “repair shed” or “share shed” operated by retired tradies etc.....the ideas would be many but maybe it’s been thought of before.?
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?

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?
