Easter bunny safe after bill voted down

Another bill to open shops at Easter was voted down, in a move that has been welcomed by retail workers. National MP Todd McClay’s bill was defeated  62 votes to 59.

Margaret Dornan, a worker at Farmers and Vice President of the National Distribution Union said that retail workers already have very little family time, and that this bill (the 8th attempt to ruin Easter since 1996) would have made matters even worse. “You’ve only got 3 and ½ days when shops aren’t open.”

She said she was very pleased with the outcome. “I think it has sunk home to MPs that families are more important than shops opening, and that community should come before commerce.”
