Booster is now Living Wage accredited

09 May 2019

Booster is proud to announce it is now accredited as a Living Wage employer by Living Wage Aotearoa. This achievement marks our ongoing commitment to help New Zealanders live financially secure lives.

The Living Wage encourages employers to pay workers an hourly wage that allows a worker to cover the necessities of life. It reflects the basic expenses of workers such as food, transportation, housing and childcare, and is calculated independently each year by the New Zealand Family Centre Social Policy Unit.

The Living Wage rate is voluntary and for 2019, it is $21.15 per hour. This is higher than the current minimum wage of $17.70 per hour.

Booster pledged to become Living Wage accredited as part of our CoGo accreditation in 2018. The Living Wage accreditation formalises our existing policy to pay our direct employees a living wage and extends to cover indirect workers employed by contractors who provide Booster with a regular service.
