    Just because they maybe incapable of achieving it, does not mean we shouldn't fight against their attempts.

    Seems like the government are doing the work around with the app. Have to leave your contact details when you get a hair cut now. Name and phone number

    Is this law? Which law? Or is it just their initiative?

    It's just virtue signalling on behalf of management.
    What store was this? Some pet shop?

    I work with an NZ company and the leadership teams are very proud of their police state efforts. This kind of fits well with kiwi culture because they are a super proud nation when it comes to their achievements as a small country. It wouldn’t surprise me if most corporate organisations will happily go along with government sanctioned stripping of freedoms and keeping a closer eye on staff. I don’t like having to explain any part of my life outside of work as an expectation. Problem is they genuinely believe it is in the name of safety and positive work culture. I’d classify it as ‘Benevolent oppression’
