Labour women’s affairs spokeswoman, Sue Moroney, said axing the pay investigations sent the message that women were “second-class citizens at work”.
She said the gender pay gap stood at 12 per cent in New Zealand, and strong advocacy was required to close it.
That’s another step backwards for this country.
