The final report from the Pacific Pay Gap inquiry has been released this morning, showing vast inequality for Pasifika workers.
It found employers have prejudice against Pacific names, an undervaluing of qualifications held by Pasifika people, and a lack of pay transparency.
The report revealed Pasifika men, on average are paid nearly 19 percent less than a Pākehā male, and Pasifika women are paid 25 percent less.
The report recommends urgent legislation requiring pay transparency, raising of the minimum wage to the living wage, and the expansion of the equal pay act to include ethnicity and disability.
