The staff range across a number of organisations, that-of; retail stores, hospitality venues and hotels.
During April of 2021, the pay raise will go to $20.75 per hour, 75 cents above the current new minimum wage range.

“Our focus is on becoming a high performing business that delivers value and support back to West Auckland. To do that, we are working hard to better manage our costs and lift our sales and service performance, so we continue to deliver important initiatives like this for the community and our people,” he says.
