Changes to minimum wage and tax policy came into force in New Zealand today.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s had promised to raise the minimum wage to $20 per hour (£10.15) and to raise taxes on the wealthiest Kiwis.
The rise in wages means that the income of 175,500 New Zealanders will be increased by $44 (£22.30) each week.
“Today’s rise to $20 per hour is estimated to boost wages across the economy by $216 million, giving New Zealanders more money to spend at local businesses,” Minister for Workplace Relations and Safety Michael Wood said.
