Question Title

In Aotearoa New Zealand, there is a Pacific pay gap, where Pacific workers are getting paid less than other ethnic groups as outlined above. We know that Pacific workers contribute significantly to the economy, both through their paid employment and through voluntary work and community service. We also know that many Pacific peoples are struggling to secure enough work to make ends meet. Pacific workers are often in jobs with low pay, and/or finding it difficult to progress in their roles.

We welcome submissions from all Pacific workers, particularly those in the private sector – in Manufacturing, Construction and Health. From 19 July 2021 to 30 November 2021, you can write to us, email us, tweet at us, phone us, send us a video, or attend one of the Talanoa which will be held across the country.

This survey is collected by the Human Rights Commission. The Commission recognises the value of the information you share with us and we are committed to keeping it secure and confidential. The data we collect will be used to inform the Pacific Pay Gap Inquiry. Inquiry findings will be kept confidential, so that individuals or businesses cannot be identified. Read our privacy statement here.
