Why does financial literacy matter to Auckland’s Pacific people?

COVID-19 has made Auckland’s entrenched inequities worse. Nearly 60 per cent of Auckland’s Pacific 99,300-strong Pacific workforce is employed in less-skilled jobs, especially vulnerable to the changing nature of work and the economic impacts of COVID-19. Across New Zealand 9.5 per cent of Pacific households experience in-work poverty.
