University of Auckland Professor of economics, Susan St John, recently released an article discussing the state of low income households in the upcoming election.

Rawan spoke to her about her article and research that looked at the In Work Tax Credit (or IWTC) and the areas in which it was failing low income households.

They also discussed the policies that Aotearoa’s two major party’s, Labour and National, have pledged. This included their promise to increase low income households to $50,000 by 2026 as well as Labour’s forgotten promise to review and change the IWTC system
