Kāpiti Council should pay Living Wage

Editor

It is said that council can’t afford to pay all staff a living wage. This is easily fixed. Were they to institute a policy of fixed rate pay rises for all staff instead of percentage ones, the obscene differential between top earners and low ones would slowly shrink, and it would not be long before even the lowest paid would get a living wage and no rates increase.
