20 cents wont pay the bills

Friday, August 16, 2013

FIRST Union members at Pak n Save Mangere took action last weekend for a decent pay rise.

Protest organisers said everybody has to eat, and so owning a Pak n Save is like having a license to print money. 

Pak n Save Mangere’s owner is getting wealthier off the back of the workers who do the long hard grind of stocking the shelves and serving the customers seven days a week, but the pay is so low they struggle to feed their families.

When they asked for a pay rise to help pay the bills he offered them a miserly 20 cents an hour.
