It’s no secret that poverty is a prevalent issue in Aotearoa, with the narrative often around inequality amongst our most vulnerable communities. New research conducted by AUT’s New Zealand Work Research Institute has found that more than 50,000 working households are living in poverty across New Zealand. 

 

This report was commissioned by the Human Rights Commission, who will analyse these implications identified through the findings, to inform their advocacy work focussing on poverty, equality, and non-discrimination. 


Louis spoke with Dr. Alexander Plum, a Senior Research Fellow, at the NZ Work Research Institute, who are an inquiry-driven research team that analyse & explore issues affecting people and their work. Here he is talking about inequality amongst working-class households.
