Migrant Pay Gap Research


New research into the migrant pay gap in New Zealand has revealed concerning inequities between different migrant groups.

The report, commissioned by Diversity Works New Zealand, shows that migrants from South Africa, Northern America, the United Kingdom, and the rest of Europe all earned a higher average hourly wage than migrants from Asia, the rest of the Americas, Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia. There are a variety of factors that contribute to these inequities, such as cultural and language differences, institutional barriers, structural bias and discrimination.
