Employers of Pacific workers

We've talked to employers of Pacific workers in the construction, health and manufacturing sectors.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, there is a Pacific Pay Gap, where Pacific workers are getting paid less than other ethnic groups. 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.
