09:05 What is being done to fix the gender pay gap?
New figures show that men in the public service are still getting paid a lot more than women, with no change in the 14 percent gender pay gap.
The State Services Commission's survey of wages shows two government departments - the Ministry of Defence and Crown Law - pay their male workers an average 39 percent more than they do women.
The median pay gap across all sectors in New Zealand recently got worse; in 2015 it was 11.8 per cent, up from 9.9 per cent in 2014.
The Minister for Women, Louise Upston concedes more needs to be done to address the gender pay gap
