Coming up on #TheHui..
Doing it tough..
We come face to face with some of Aotearoa’s most desperately in need, forced to rely on welfare and not getting the help they’re entitled to.
We look at why are so many are being locked out of the gates of our rock star economy.
A special 2 part report on poverty..
9:25am Sunday’s on TV3.
We’ve missed it live but it will appear at The Hui archive for streaming.
Admission by @AnneTolleyMP that they don't know what happens to people coming off benefits is pretty striking. And worrying.

Breaking down in tears at WINZ is a thing I've done many times. It can be dehumanising AF going there #TheHui

Fewer people on benefits is not a measure of success; it doesn't measure if people's lives have improved – Max Rashbrooke#thehui
