Protest for pay equity in Wellington

Since coming to power, National has dumped on the basic right of women to be paid the same as men, shitcanning two inquiries into pay equity in the public sector because they might cost money and disestablishing the Department of Labour's Pay and Employment Equity Unit, which conducts research on the gender-pay gap and how to reduce it. Now you can do something about it. The CTU is holding a protest at Parliament in two weeks time to challenge the government to close the pay gap and do more about pay and gender equity issues.

When: 12:30, Tuesday 30 June
Where: Parliament.

Be there, and show your support for fair pay for women.
