New Zealand

A Workers Story #1

INTRODUCTION

Here Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement (ASWM) offers the first of what we hope will become an ongoing series of interviews with workers from various sectors who are having their well being and livelihoods damaged. We begin with an educator in Southland, South Island. Due to the attitude and actions of his employers, he has asked to remain anonymous.

If you have a story to share, don’t hesitate to tell us and we will do what we can to help get the news out there as part of the first step in fighting back!
