I don't think John Key's 'technical after tax distinction' is going to be enough to close this pay gap with Aussie.

Design students at Unitec need your help. Last week we reported that Unitec plans to make 50 of its 53 Design and Visual Arts staff redundant. Students at Unitec are protesting this. They say it will hurt the quality of their education if Unitec replaces its experienced, trained teachers with part-time and itinerant providers.

We agree with them!

You can support Unitec students and staff by signing this petition the Design and Visual Arts students have launched.

"Our lecturers are amazing and they deserve to get better pay." Vet nurse student Jamie Dorrestein said her class had grown in size from about 20 to 40 students this year and with students paying thousands in fees, simple maths meant there would be more money available to pay to staff.

This Christmas carol is from 2012, but sadly it's still relevant. The difference is this year Mr Joyce got a 2.2 percent pay rise back dated to July, instead of the 1.9 percent he got last year.

If you are an overseas academic or general staff who is not a citizen, but is working here in NZ as a permanent resident you ARE eligible to vote. There are six days left to make sure you are on the roll for the referendum on asset sales. Go to http://elections.org.nz/ to check you are enrolled now.
