From Morning Report, 8:41 am on 3 August 2021

Some of New Zealand's most highly paid chief executives earn in a matter of days, as much as their lowest paid employees make in a year.

A new report reveals the pay differences between the highest-paid and lowest paid in a given company.

For example - it finds the chief executive of Fletcher Building will earn the lowest paid employees annual wage in half a week.

Anglican Advocacy carried out the study after noticing an increase in fully employed people needing social welfare report.

Director of the organisation Jolyon White spoke to Corin Dann.
