"The Living Wage means going and doing things that families are supposed to be doing, other than me living at work."
As the gap between the rich and the poor grows in New Zealand and poverty increases, more and more New Zealanders don't get paid enough to meet their needs, enjoy their lives and participate in society.
All over the world communities are uniting to address poverty and inequality through living wage campaigns. Living Wage Movement Aotearoa New Zealand brings together community/secular, union and faith-based groups around a common goal of achieving a Living Wage that will enable workers to live with dignity and participate as active citizens in society.
The Movement calls on Government, employers and society as a whole to strive for a Living Wage as a necessary step in reducing inequality and poverty in our society.
