Back to the garage...
Well I have had to put the wheels away.
No gala dinner, No golden shovel, no donkey ride.
The Ministers speech was all very blah too.
Lots of stuff about innovation.
I thought that Stop/Go staff might be allowed to carry Tasers, or all roads would be closed in the winter.
I did pick up one thing though;
"...The roading industry has an edge because it has shown it is prepared to explore ways to improve working conditions to attract and retain quality people, and I hope it continues to be innovative in this respect."
I think I know the sort of innovation the Minister is on about
Firm wins award for giving staff nap time
An Auckland law firm which allows workers go home when they need a nap has won the country's top award for "work-life balance."
Well that is a step in the right direction.
I'm sure the boss agreed that to be innovative and well balanced "I need to hit the sack for a nap".
Something about "the sack", anyway.
