John Key finds more jobs for Kiwis.
He opens up Easter Sunday for trading.
OK, so he isn’t really finding more jobs, just more hours that you are allowed to work since you already get too many holidays and don’t know what to do with the time off.
And he isn’t stipulating that you have to work, or even that you can work. He is saying that the issue of Easter trading is too complicated an issue for central Government, and he is tired of dealing with it every year, so he is making it a local Government issue. A law change that he is railroading through by making National MP’s vote the party line in what has always been a conscience issue, because he can’t get the votes any other way.
Well done John Key. Way to earn your salary.
So the issue of should commercial entities open on Easter Sunday is now going to be a local body vote. Do you want TDC to allow retailers to open on Easter Sunday? Do you want to lose one of the last few days of the year that employers can’t make family members work? Do you want to open your shop because one day is the difference between you making a profit for the year or not?
Have your say, and elect a council that might actually listen to your voice.
