In the fifth series of ’Minimum,’ a short documentary series about women working for minimum wage, an international student talks about the racism, sexism and abuse she faces in her hospitality job.

The anonymous worker says that she has to try to survive on here earnings from working 20 hours a week on minimum wage, as her student visa does not allow her to work more.
She feels that there is no other option as she can’t go home as she is gay, a dangerous thing to be in her country of birth.

Minimum was produced for RNZ by ‘Notable Pictures,’ with the support of ‘Loading Docs,’ and with funding from NZ On Air.
