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.

I've noticed several articles in the news regarding this.
I'm seriously wondering how people feel about the concept of this proposal.
The statement that was "People giving family money they haven't earned".
I'm sure there are a lot of people who have gone above and beyond to care for parents/grandparents.
I'm just wondering how people feel about this even being discussed.
There hasn't been a Stuff etc poll regarding this yet so I thought I might start a discussion.
Do you think this is an overreach?
The people who worked hard for this money already paid tax.
Do you find this rude? How do your family view this?
Thank you. 🌻

People will get to have their say on Wellington's blueprint of its future. Councillors on Thursday voted on its draft spatial plan and gave the green light for city-wide engagement. The draft plan shows six-storey buildings in places like Johnsonville, as well as buildings of up to 10 storeys in Te Aro. How would you like Wellington to look in 30 years?
