The Living Wage stage

Wellington musicians and poets bring a message about poverty and inequality to this year’s festival with a Living Wage stage. The stage has come together under Artists for the Living Wage, which is part of the growing Living Wage movement. The Living Wage movement is an alliance of faith and community organisations and unions committed to raising awareness of the impact of low wages on workers, their families and communities and calling for the Living Wage. The Living Wage is a wage that enables workers to lead decent lives and participate in society.
