A Living Wage is the income necessary to provide workers and their families with the basic necessities of life. A Living Wage will enable workers to live with dignity and to participate as active citizens in society.
Living Wage Week 2019 has kicked off and runs from November 4-11.
The week opens with the Auckland launch of My Life to Live, the successful photographic exhibition and stories of former refugees at work in Aotearoa NZ. This will show at AUT City Campus, Sir Paul Reeves Building (2 Governor Fiztroy Place, "the Forum", from 5.30-7.00pm on November 4.
We will be celebrating Living Wage Week in Wellington with a public event hosted by the Sustainable Business Network and the Living Wage Movement at Living Wage business Westpac, so the wider business community can learn from Living Wage Employers: 318 Lambton Quay, Level 8, Westpac.
...and of course, there will be announcements of new Living Wage Employers during the week. (Image: Prime Minister Jacinda Adern attends the Wellington exhibition preview, pictured here with photographer Ehsan Hazaveh)
