FAMILY MATTERS: We should keep the Easter culture

There is yet another attempt to liberalise our Easter trading laws and the 1st Reading of the bill will likely happen next month (July). Family First’s Director of Research Ala Pomelile explains what is the real driving force behind attempts to liberalise the law (you may be surprised – it’s not about being able to buy the basics like bread and milk over the long weekend), and how workers and families will be impacted by a reduction in public holidays. She also rebuts a number of arguments that are used by supporters of the law change, and says that the deconstruction of Easter has cultural and political consequences. We should keep the Easter culture, for the sake of our families.
