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.

Do you think golliwogs should be sold at local markets?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Kerikeri's Old Packhouse Market will no longer have golliwogs for sale, after complaints the dolls are a racist stereotype of black people. But some people say the dolls are a harmless reminder of childhood. What do you think?
