Idiot/Savant blogs at NRT:
National is actually doing something positive for ordinary people for once, with plans to extend flexible working hours provisions – which currently apply only to caregivers – to all workers. Its a good move. The Department of Labour’s review of the provisions found that there had been no problems with their implementation (contrary to the wailing from employers when the law was passed), and that it produced significant benefits for employers (such as reduced turnover and improved productivity).
I’m all in favour of flexible working hours. If only MUNZ were also!
