Pay Equity Coaltion helps Minister Wong to leave no stone unturned

The Pay Equity Challenge Coalition invites supporters to join them on Wednesday 30 June at Parliament grounds for their “No Stone Unturned!” action to mark the anniversary of the closing of the Pay and Employment Equity Unit.

Hard-working rock lifters will leave no stone unturned to try and close the gender pay gap. Hard hats, high-vis vests and work boots are the order of the day when there are gender pay gap problems to overcome.
To help, be at Parliament Grounds, Molesworth St, Wellington at 1.00pm on Wednesday 30 June (rain or shine).

Last year Minister of Women’s Affairs Pansy Wong promised to “leave no stone unturned in trying to close the pay gap.”  “We’re going to place five large stones on Parliament grounds and underneath will be five solutions to the gender pay gap" said Pay Equity Challenge Coalition spokesperson Angela McLeod. "We expect Pansy Wong will be thrilled that we have done the work for her and we look forward to our solutions being actioned.”

“It’s been a year since the Government closed the Pay and Employment Equity Unit but the Pay Equity Challenge Coalition has a long memory. We won’t let the Government forget their promise to try and close the gender pay gap."
