Global Women Aotearoa has said that based upon the gender pay gap of 8.6% according to Statistics New Zealand, women in Aotearoa have been effectively working for free from the 30th of November until the end of the year. This disparity is much higher for Māori women, who face a pay gap of 14.3%, and Pasifika women, who face a pay gap of 15.2%. The statement from Global Women is a part of their eight percent matters campaign, which aims to make New Zealanders more aware of the gender pay gap. Global Women says they want New Zealanders to use this time of year to talk about topics like pay equity and pay transparency with those around them, and the campaign is an attempt to spark that conversation
Rosetta spoke to Agnes Naera, CEO of Global Women, about the eight percent matters campaign, what the current state of the gender pay gap in Aotearoa looks like, and what more needs to be done.
