The Living Wage Movement

Living Wage Movement Aotearoa New Zealand brings together community/secular, union and faith-based groups to campaign for a Living Wage.

We uphold four key principles, including that the Living Wage Movement is:

1. non-party political

2. built locally through local relationships and local issues

3. independent of government in terms of funding and association

4. comprised of three streams of the membership: secular/community, union, faith-based groups.

We also have an accreditation system available for employers, who meet the criteria to become a Living Wage Employer.  This is a trade mark and cannot be used unless a licence has been signed committing the business to paying no less than the Living Wage to directly employed and contracted workers, delivering services on a regular and ongoing basis.  See the Employer section of this website for more: Living Wage Employers and for any questions contact (021 270 6529).
