Submission on the Minimum Wage and Renumeration Amendment Bill 2006


  • Caritas supports and welcomes the intention of this Bill to ensure that New Zealand’s lowest paid and most poorly protected workers are brought under the basic protections provided by the Minimum Wage Act.
  • However, there is a strong possibility that the bill will draw under the coverage of the Act some groups of workers who are employed on a contract basis and do not necessarily require the coverage of the Act.
