The New Zealand Government has announced that from April 1, the adult minimum wage will increase by 2% to $23.15 per hour, up from the current rate of $22.70. This decision, according to Workplace Relations and Safety Minister Brooke van Velden, aims to balance supporting low-income workers and maintaining a labour market conducive to employment. The increase is expected to affect between 80,000 and 145,000 workers. Training and starting wages will also rise to $18.52, remaining at 80% of the adult minimum wage.
