New Zealand Youth Union Movement thanks Sue Bradford
New Zealand’s youth union movement, Stand Up, thanks Green MP Sue Bradford for the valuable contribution she has made to making New Zealand a more fair and just society.
Convener, James Sleep, says Sue Bradford’s legacy is one to be proud of.
Over Sue’s time in Parliament she has consistently been a strong voice for children and young people.
As a result of Sue’s commitment and passion for young people, the youth minimum wage was raised to the same level as the adult minimum wage, and our children were awarded the same legal protection against assault as all other New Zealanders.
Over Sue’s long career inside and outside Parliament, she has shown a fierce belief in young New Zealanders.
On behalf of young workers I sincerely thank Sue Bradford and look forward to working with her as she continues her advocacy outside of Parliament.
