The truth about child poverty in NZ

The truth about child poverty in NZ

On Monday the Children's Commissioner will release a sobering report on the state of child poverty in New Zealand.

Among the findings is that poverty in New Zealand is getting worse - much worse. It is a time bomb set to cost our country enormously in future years.

Commissioner Russell Wills put the report together independently because he sees poverty as one of the great issues facing New Zealand.

Campbell Live has done a lot of work on poverty and why it matters. Even now though, many people out there refuse to accept it is a problem, let alone something that we need to do something about.

Lachlan Forsyth spoke with Dr Wills about his report, and why every New Zealander needs to read it.

Watch the video for the full story.
