Business is doing it tough; and they’re telling Government loud and clear there is a need for employers to receive a weekly support package to cover recurring costs to get through another two weeks of lockdown. 

The Auckland Business Chamber has an online petition calling on Government to provide an employer subsidy, rather than a one off resurgence payment which did not go anywhere near far enough. 

There's been a great response with over 15,000 signing the petition so far.  

Auckland Chamber of Commerce chief executive Michael Barnett joined Kerre McIvor.
