On Saturday, I went to the Grey Lynn festival to talk to people about our women’s policy, and draw attention to the inequities between women and men when it comes to paid work.
We invited festival goers to spin the Pay Equity Wheel of Fortune – Show Me The Money!
They might land on the job of John Key’s female cleaner, paid $14 per hour after 19 years. Or they might land on the job in banking, a sector overwhelmingly dominated by men, at a starting rate of $43.60 hour.
The odds are against women when it comes to receiving fair pay. That’s why Equal Pay is one of our key priorities this election.
