The SST has confirmed that John Key is to move ahead with his plan to shift low paid workers back from four to three weeks annual leave.
It is dressed up as an option but you would have to believe in Santa Claus to fall for that one.
At the same time the government is to move on the method of calculating holiday pay in order to reduce its value to seasonal and part time workers.
And the government has rejected to widespread calls for Easter Sunday to be a public holiday so that workers forced to work that day are paid something extra. It is plain weird that a Parliament which prays to a Christian god at the beginning of every sitting day refuses to recognise the most holy day of the year as a holiday.
