The Herald fails again

July 18, 2013

In an article, bylined Bernard Orsman in the NZ Herald, on the Auckland mayoral campaigns was this little phrase:-

Mr Minto is promising free public transport and paying council staff and council contractors the minimum wage of $18.40 an hour.

However, the minimum wage is not $18.40 per hour. What Minto is promising, according to his press releases is:-

time for Auckland City to step forward and adopt the living wage for everyone employed directly by the council as well as those employed by council contractors

So the NZ Herald fails yet again. Yet another inaccuracy and a significant one at that.
