Modern slavery: ‘The reality of life on the minimum wage in NZ’

Minimum wage:

“In 2017, there were about 76,400 people on minimum wage (which was $15.75 an hour at the time – it increased to $16.50 on April 1, 2018) in New Zealand, and an estimated 164,100 people earning $16.50 (which at the time was above minimum wage.)”

Minimum wage: The mum spending all her pay on rent

Minimum: Charmaine and Victoria – the cleaners

 

Minimum wage: Mum of five thought there would be more than $10 left

 

Minimum wage: Working students sharing a bedroom

A new episode of Minimum will be posted on the RNZ website every weekday this week and next.

A New Depth in Depravity for New Zealand

Finger pointed at NZ in sex trade report

By MICHAEL FIELD – Fairfax Media | Thursday, 05 June 2008

A graphic US Government report on modern slavery has accused New Zealand of being a “destination country” for the trafficking of women for sex from Malaysia, Hong Kong and China [for some reason Vietnamese women are not mentioned in the report.]
[…]
It says some Asian and Pacific Islanders who migrate willingly to work in the agricultural sector and women from the Philippines who migrate to work as nurses “are charged excessive recruiting fees by manpower agencies, and experience unjustified salary deductions and occasional contract fraud, actions that make them vulnerable to involuntary servitude or debt bondage”.

Why was the Wenchuan girl photographed below separated from her parents? Where is she now?

[The report called for] a formal procedure to identify victims of trafficking among vulnerable groups such as foreign women arrested for prostitution or migrant labourers and continue efforts to investigate and prosecute citizens engaged in child sex tourism.

It said the United States opposed legalised prostitution and the report noted that since this came about in 2004, there had been 94 prosecutions for crimes involving commercial sexual exploitation of minors.
[…]
On Fiji – a major destination for New Zealand tourists – the US State Department says children from China are trafficked for the purposes of sexual exploitation. People from India are trafficked for forced labour and commercial sex.

“In addition, Fiji boys and girls are victims of commercial sexual exploitation by Fiji citizens, foreign tourists, and sailors on foreign fishing vessels. (Source) © Fairfax New Zealand Limited 2007.
