May Day Workers Day, Living Incomes for Paid and Unpaid Workers Now!

Unite Waitemata members at picket supporting workers' strike at  McDonalds Queen St.
On 1st May, International Workers Day, the government introduced Youth Rates which discriminate against workers on grounds of age, and further discriminate against youth who have previously been on benefits for six months.  Meanwhile many workers such as mothers and carers, work for no wage at all. The welfare changes place  the health and safety of many families in danger  from sanctions for failing work tests;  not using  childcare, or failing employer's drug tests.
Employed and Unemployed Unite for  a living income for all!
