    NewZealand: SuperSizeMyPay.Com: $12 Minimum Wage, Abolish Youth Rates and Secure Hours - aotearoa / pacific islands / workplace struggles / opinion/analysis - Anarkismo.net
    You must remember that Aotearoa/NZ used to have one of the highest standards of living in the Western world. We now have one of the highest rates of low pay and child poverty.

    Strategically - raising the minimum wage is an important campaign. It is a very real issue to many people within the community - not just within the workplace.

    Poor workers may or may not be interested in political speak, but they certainly don't have time to invest their energies into something that they can't guareentee will have any direct benefits for them.

    Raising the minimum wage is a simple concept that anyone can understand. Anarcho-Communism is not.
