“Employment equity is about fairness at work. It means people have the same opportunities to participate fully in employment regardless of their gender.” This is Employment NZ’s definition of the gender pay gap.

The point of this petition is to raise awareness for this problem and to spread the message.

over NZ, women are being underrepresented in higher-level jobs. Also, many female workers in New Zealand work in occupations that are more than 80% female and these female-dominated occupations tend to be lower paid in comparison. The pay gap between men and women can often go unnoticed.
