On Friday, I went to a cheery Campaign launch in Wellington for the latest Unite! minimum wage increase call – to raise the minimum to $15/hour.
We gathered at the Southern Cross in Abel Smith St, to be welcomed by Don Franks MC-ing, and a warm-up performance by the Union Choir, who sang stirringly and melodically.
There were a few more speeches after the intro, then a time of social chitchat and networking was enjoyed by all.
Details of the new campaign can be found at Unite! website.
