Living Wage Movement

Bigger pay packets could soon become a reality for more Nelson workers with Living Wage Aotearoa New Zealand convenor Annie Newman in town to discuss the policy with councillors and local businesses.

The Living Wage Aotearoa New Zealand, which asks employers to pay $19.25 per hour to staff and contracted workers rather than the minimum $14.75 per hour, is now looking to establish a network of unions and community groups in Nelson.

Newman said Nelson had expressed interest in the idea before, but that this was the first co-ordinated discussion about the issue.

"The living wage movement resonates with people because it says 'this is something that's achievable,'" she said.

The Living Wage Aotearoa New Zealand's Nelson spokeswoman Jan Noonan said that Nelson's "sunshine wages" did not reflect the high cost of living in the region.[1]
