"Hon Phil Goff: Will the Prime Minister support the call by the Employers and Manufacturers Association (Northern) for workers to cash up 2 weeks of their annual leave, given his support in this House for the US position of having only 2 weeks annual leave entitlement for workers? Hon JOHN KEY: No, I will not. I have made it quite clear that I think it makes sense for people to potentially have the choice to cash in their fourth week. That will give them a 2 percent pay increase, so they may choose to do that. Of course, most workers will choose not to do that, but this party believes in choice, which is something the New Zealand public was robbed of for 9 years."
