The New Zealand government has increased the minimum wage for adults. It is now set at $20 per hour.

The move will see the move increase the incomes of 175,500 New Zealanders.

Before Thursday, the minimum wage for an adult sat at $18.90. With the jump to $20, it means $44 a week more for someone working on the minimum wage for 40 hours a week. 

If someone works every week of the year, they’ll be earning an extra $2288.
