Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe lines were 100, and in the larger cities 1,000. They had finally done it. It took decades before the majority decided to be the majority. It took the lives of thousands more children for the majority to learn that they, in fact, had had the power all along.Then all hell broke loose. The “lobby” pulled their fear out of their closets and drawers and cabinets, and went out on the streets. There were banners calling for civil war. There were bombings and more would die defending that “amendment.”As time moved on, the truth of the many extinguished the fear of the few. Glints of hard metal were visible in the sunlight. They put their fears on the conveyor belt and turned to sign some official papers. When it was over, they went back to their homes.Naturally, the murders subsided, but the afflicted turned to other ways to soothe their pain. It was all right, though.

“Think about if that’s something that would work for your workplace, because it certainly would help tourism all around the country,” she said.New Zealand, with a population of five million, has recorded just 21 coronavirus deaths, thanks largely to the early lockdown and rigorous adherence to anti-virus measures.International borders remain closed but New Zealanders are now free to travel domestically, with tourism operators and airlines ramping up services to meet demand. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Wednesday raised the prospect of Kiwis enjoying extra public holidays and a shorter working week to help kickstart New Zealand’s post-lockdown economy.Ardern said she wanted to encourage “nimble” and creative ideas for recovery after a strict seven-week lockdown that helped New Zealand contain COVID-19 but stalled the economy.Suggestions included moving to a four-day week and creating extra public holidays to help boost spending in the tourism and hospitality sectors that have been hit particularly hard by the lockdown. “This is an extraordinary time and we should be willing to consider extraordinary ideas,” she told reporters, adding: “I haven’t ruled anything in or out.”Ardern said there is “a range of options and we should be open [minded]”.After talking to tourism industry representatives on Tuesday, the prime minister said working from home during lockdown had shown how productive employees could be if given extra flexibility.She said a four-day week could work the same way if employers were willing to try it.
