Living Wage Movement Aotearoa NZ

The Living Wage Movement Aotearoa New Zealand is an alliance of community, union and faith groups calling for government, employers and society as a whole to strive for a Living Wage as a necessary and important step in the reduction of poverty.

It announces the annual Living Wage set by the Family Centre Social Policy Research Unit and provides an accreditation system for employers, who agree all workers will be paid a Living Wage, whether they are directly paid and contracted to deliver regular and ongoing services to the business. Above all, it seeks to influence government to pave the way, by ensuring a basic yet decent income for all workers paid by public money.
