$15 an hr Campaign for a Living Wage – Wellington public meeting


Matt Jones (Unite Union)

Joe Fleetwood (Maritime Union)

Grant Brookes (RAM)

Unite Union has initiated a petition for a Citizens Initiated Referendum on raising the minimum wage. The referendum will ask the question, "Should the adult minimum wage be raised in steps over the next three years, starting with an immediate rise to $15 per hour, until it reaches 66% of the average total hourly earnings as defined in the Quarterly Employment Survey?"

Come along and hear how the petition is mobilising support for an alternative response to the economic crisis.

When? 2pm, Sunday August 9

Where? Crossways, 6 Roxburgh St, Mt Victoria.

Hosted by the Alliance Party and RAM – Residents Action Movement. For more information, contact Grant (021 053 2973) or Jocelyn (04 385 1936).
