Anglicans express concern over growing income gaps

The Auckland Anglican Diocesan Synod met in September and “expressed its concern about the growing income gap in our society and the increasing prevalence of insecure employment which jeopardises a cohesive social framework”. It also passed a motion calling on the government to ban zero-hours contracts that exclude alternate employment options and require people to work any hours offered. The synod also chose to reaffirm its commitment to the Living Wage as a necessary step in reducing inequality and poverty in our society.
