Living Wage visits Hurunui

LeithfieldAmberley

Can you spare an hour of your time to support Anglican Advocacy and the Living Wage movement as they try to make a difference to people in our very own Hurunui district?

Living Wage Canterbury is taking deputation to the Hurunui District Council at 1pm on the 27th August, 66 Carters Road, Amberley. As ratepayers of the district, we are able to attend this meeting and it would be wonderful to see the chambers packed for a change.

Did you know that of the 285,000 children that live in poverty in New Zealand, 40% of them live in families where at least one parent is working full-time or self-employed?

Please click on the PDF link below to read the informative flyer, and prayerfully consider attending the hearing at the HDC chambers. If the deputation is successful, then the council will in future apply the principle of a living wage not just when it employs people directly but also when it employs indirectly via contracts awarded.
