Living Wage Employer

Did you know? We are an accredited Living Wage Employer.

The Living Wage movement was in response to growing poverty and inequality that continues to hold back so many Kiwi workers, their families and our economy.

The Living Wage concept is very simple – it’s the hourly wage a worker needs to pay for the necessities of life and participate as an active citizen in the community. It reflects the basic expenses of workers and their families such as food, transportation, housing and childcare, and is calculated independently each year by the New Zealand Family Centre Social Policy Unit.
