Just for the record ...
- we get 4 weeks a year - like everyone else.
- being self employed is a choice - what has that got to with anything?
- most of us are also part of that tired group of rate payers with families and broken houses.
In addition to that, a very large number of us are also at the coal face- assisting other rate payers with similar situations.
- I dont see anything to support the basis for comparison on how hard we work. I know I work damn hard ... I see alot of people around me doing the same ... and this has been much worse over the last 20 months.
I think it is really nice that our employer is acknowledging the pressure we have been under - why isnt yours?
ps ... if they are non working ... dont they already have a day off?

Obsence waste of rate payers money. they already get 4 or 5 weeks leave a year. This on top of the 6 extra days they have had is simply wrong. Other people are working just as hard, if not harder. Its all too easy to give away other peoples money. CHCH will not get another cent from me
