Ngāi Tahu Tourism says it is committed to moving all staff to at least the living wage of $20.55.

It's one of the largest tourism operators in Aotearoa with 13 businesses including Shotover Jet in Queenstown, Franz Josef Glacier Guides and Rainbow Springs in Rotorua

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu chair Lisa Tumahai says it's the first Ngāi Tahu company to take up the challenge, and the tribe's other businesses will follow suit.

"Our Ngāi Tahu whanui have an expectation we live up to our values, not only how we work with our own whānau but within our organisation and with our staff and how we demonstrate a genuine commitment to the people that work for us," she says.

Ms Tumahai says tourism has been seen as a low paid industry, and raising the minimum wage could help attract more talent.

Should we strip Oranga Tamariki of its name?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: You get the feeling that the Ministry of Vulnerable Children's name change to Oranga Tamariki was a brown washing exercise to gloss over the much more violent reality of what this new agency would be doing.
Does size matter? The Cross-Cultural Politics of the Penis.
Dr Rawiri Taonui: Those who apply a cultural double standard to condemn indigenous art as obscene while ignorant of their own tradition are the sorts of people who refer to sexual intercourse as having a naughty.
It's okay to kōrero, it's okay to be Māori
Dr Rawiri Taonui: In Tauranga last week there was a ‘It’s okay to be White’ leaflet drop. Complaints also came to light against netball teams from Māori schools for speaking te reo on court.
