Labour and New Zealand First’s Coalition Agreement has been signed and the minimum wage is set to rise. We want to know what Waikato businesses make of that. Under the agreement, in April the minimum wage will rise from $15.75 to $16.50 and by 2021 it will reach $20. What do you think? Do you support increasing the minimum wage?

Last month’s results: Do you support a Capital Gains Tax?
Labour backed down on a Capital Gains Tax during the election campaign but we were still interested in readers’ opinion. With Labour now forming the Government the tax could be back on the agenda. Readers seem reasonably supportive of the tax with 61 percent saying it has to come eventually. Thirty-nine percent maintain they don’t like it. As always with these things, the devil may be in the detail.
