The Government must move faster to close gender and ethnic pay gaps if it wants to help people who are struggling with low wages due to discrimination, says MindTheGap.

On Tuesday in Parliament, the Government published its response to the Education and Workforce Select Committee inquiry into pay transparency.

The national pay gap is 9.1% but it is a lot higher in many companies. On average it means for every dollar a Pākehā man earns, a Pākehā woman earns 89 cents, a Māori woman 81 cents and a Pasifika woman 75 cents

Emilia Sullivan spoke to Jo Cribb, founder of MindTheGap.
