From , 5:02 am on 16 April 2018

A Papua New Guinea trade union leader says low paid workers are having hundreds of millions of kina stolen by their employers.

The Trade Union Congress has raised concerns about what it calls wage theft.
The TUC general secretary, John Paska, says tens of thousands of workers, mostly on PNG's meagre minimum wage, have been underpaid an estimated $US224 million over the past five years.

Don Wiseman asked him to define 'wage theft.'
