A good wage is one that you are comfortable with and I reckon that's fairly subjective.. I think you mentioned you are a printer. From a quick squiz at the classifieds it looks like you could expect something along the lines of NZ$20-NZ$25/hour. However, if you are a production supervisor or something like that perhaps you would get NZ$65,000/year +car (that's what one job offer I saw).
Now, what will this get you? As far as housing it depends if you are bringing over a tidy sum for a grubstake or if you are starting from scratch. Are you a single bloke or are you bringing dependents? Do you cook or do you buy most of your meals out? There are more than a few variables to consider.

At any rate...suerte.
