"...Seventeen retailers across New Zealand face legal action after Department of Labour inspectors caught them trading during today's holiday.
The Department of Labour declined to name the offending businesses, nor what action it intended to take for trading on Good Friday.
Most of those caught were garden centres, although inspectors also caught three music shops breaking the law..."
Find out who the busybodies were and make them redundant. How does penalizing businesses help in hard economic times?
This is a bloody ridiculous situation, where one shop may open and another may not.
Put these (inspectors) relics of a socialist era on the scrap heap!
