New Zealand workers on the minimum wage are set for a significant pay rise.
The Government has announced it will increase the minimum wage to $17.70 an hour on April 1, with further increases to take it to $20 by 2021.
Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Iain Lees-Galloway said the 2019 increase would mean an extra $48 a week before tax for minimum-wage workers.
“The Government is determined to improve the wellbeing and living standards of all New Zealanders as we build a productive, sustainable and inclusive economy,” Lees-Galloway said. Source stuff.co.nz
