The living wage is the income necessary to provide workers and their families with the necessities of life and to permit them to participate fully in society. The living wage for New Zealand has been calculated to be $18.40 per hour.
We, the undersigned, appeal to Hamilton city councillors to commit to supporting New Zealanders’ need for a fair living wage by engaging in public discussion with leaders at local and national government level. Hard-working Kiwis deserve fair financial reward to provide an acceptable standard of living.

To:
Ensure the Living Wage is added to council's agenda.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
