Campaigners are celebrating what could be the final step to a living wage at Auckland Council.

The council's budget includes a proposal to pay all council workers the living wage of $20.20 per hour.

More than 2,000 submissions backing the proposal are being presented by Living Wage Auckland today.

Chair Yvette Taylor said with the Mayor's support, and the huge number of submissions, they're confident it will go through.
