The Living Wage Aotearoa NZ campaign is under way. A report was published last December that defined a “living wage” as the income necessary to provide workers and their families with the basic necessities of life. It would enable workers to live with dignity and to participate as active citizens in society. It has been suggested that workers paid through publicly-supported funds should earn wages above the poverty level and that private contractors supplying such organisations pay their workers a “living wage”.

The guest In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Face Television this week is a spokesperson for the campaign, Annie Newman.
