Paid only 50c more than minimum wage in her role at a rest home, Sheree must become a master budgeter to support her child.
Stories from women on the front line of minimum wage employment.
Minimum is a powerful documentary series combining animation with factual interviews. Each short piece shares stories from women of all ages, ethnicities and sexualities working in precarious, underappreciated and minimum wage jobs in Aotearoa.
As New Zealand nears the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage, the struggle for equality continues for so many women – Minimum gives them a voice.
Presented with humour, power and honesty, Minimum highlights women’s experiences in minimum-wage or undervalued work, demonstrating their strength and resilience.
Minimum asks the viewer: Is this okay?
