This Government came to power saying the gender pay gap was terrible and they would get rid of it.
But alas the Stats NZ data tells another story.
The gender gap has fallen just 0.1% from 2017 to 2019. It has gone from 9.4% to 9.3% – a mere 1.1% decline over two years in relative terms.
And what happened under National? The gap fell from 12.5% to 9.4%, a relative decline of 24.8%
