    The National Party says Labour's plan to double sick leave entitlements shows they're out of touch

    The National Party says Labour's plan to double sick leave entitlements shows they're out of touch


    If re-elected, Labour will increase minimum sick leave entitlements from five to 10 days per year.

    National leader Judith Collins says this - and plans to increase the minimum wage to 20-dollars an hour next year - shows Labour's out of touch with small businesses.

    She says this will cripple businesses, and make it harder for workers to keep their jobs.

    Judith Collins says National believes in a flexible work place but to legislate for any change in sick leave when small businesses are fighting for survival is incomprehensible.
