An MIQ hotel has promised workers the living wage once it goes back to hospitality. 

Managed Isolation and Quarantine will be a four hotel operation by the end of June, but there's been concerns they'd be dropping back to a lower pay rate. 

Rydges Auckland has confirmed it will pay workers the Living Wage of $22.75 permanently. 

Unite Union National Secretary John Crocker told Tim Dower they're now trying to get the other hotels to follow suit. 

He's optimistic about some, but not others.
