A new report came out yesterday that revealed concerning levels of migrant worker exploitation in New Zealand. The research showed workers were working excessive work hours - up to 18 hour shifts and 80 to 90 hour working weeks - and that some were being paid as little as $5 an hour by employers. Ximena speaks to the Green Party immigration spokesperson, Denise Roche, about the report.
