Max People Update - Alert Level 2

Max People Update 15th May

FridayA couple of words

The risk of COVID-19 transmission remains, though the move to Alert Level 2 reflects the risk is lower. This means it’s safer to do a range of work and social activities. The main message is to keep the physical distancing, don't hang out with heaps of people and continue with the hand washing regime.

Max People is looking solid with many staff returning to work over the last couple of weeks and with the release of the governments budget we will continue to prosper. 

The Government will spend up to $50b fighting the Coronavirus crash with a massive injection of funding for jobs, training, and infrastructure.

At the centre of this spending is a focus on keeping people in work through a sudden and deep recession, with a $3.2b targeted extension to the wage subsidy scheme for a further eight weeks, $3b in infrastructure investment with 8000 new public homes being built, and $1.6b for trades and apprenticeship training.

Things in the world of construction are looking mighty fine!


Thinking of travel?

Heading overseas is a non- event for the foreseeable future. Whilst there are talks between the New Zealand and Australian governments about opening up the borders, the reality is that this option should be a long way off.

Now would be a good time to explore your own country. We have so much to offer and our struggling tourism sector would appreciate it. Spectacular scenery, hot pools, ski slopes, hunting, fishing, kayaking, sailing, bungy jumping......the list goes on, it just depends on what tickles your fancy.

Get out and have a look at whats on offer. Check out the '100% Pure New Zealand'  link below for somewhere to start.

The final word


In the words of Martin Luther King Jr.

“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.”

Only when we are at our lowest can we see the best from ourselves and those around us. A man at his lowest is a man in desperation and those desperations drives him to find a way out of his misery. Man finds his best of inspirations and the drive to do the things he wants to do when he is at his lowest because when he is at his lowest, he also does not have a lot to lose. You also discover the best from those around you. When you lose everything and ask those around you for help you get to know who your true friends are and the ones who were just there for namesake. You know the ones that help you in your toughest times are those that really care about you. When you are at your lowest you also discover your true limits and you also do things that you thought were never possible by yourself. It brings that side of you that never comes out, the side of you that nothing else can bring out of you. You also learn to appreciate the smaller things in life and understand the things that are truly important and learn to appreciate life better. It teaches you humility and a respect for life.

Have an awesome weekend team. Enjoy the new found freedom and stay safe out there.
