Research released yesterday showed that there is a big pay gap between Pasifika and non-Pasifika in New Zealand, and most of it can’t be explained even after accounting for things like differences in occupation and educational achievement.

The research, conducted by AUT and published by the Human Rights Commission was the first time the pay gap had been looked at closely in terms of ethnicity, and the findings were dismal.

For every dollar a Pākehā man earns, a Pākehā woman earns 89c; a Pasifika man 81c; and a Pasifika woman earns 75c, according to non-profit organisation MindtheGap.

Emilia Sullivan spoke with MindTheGap founder Jo Cribb about this concerning new data.

Here is Mindthegap's petition to the government to mandate pay gap reporting: https://our.actionstation.org.nz/petitions/close-the-gender-and-ethnic-pay-gaps-make-pay-gap-reporting-mandatory-for-businesses-in-new-zealand
