Saturday 01 March 2014: There are reports that New Zealand has a rock star economy, but those on the minimum wage are getting a 50 cents an hour pay rise – not enough to buy a song on iTunes. On Kia Korero Mai this week, Eru Morgan talks to Manurewa community leader Tunui McLean on what effect the increase in the minimum wage will have on the working poor… and what they can do to change things.

Sunday 02 March 2014: On Sunday, political commentator Henare Kingi talks about Labour's new chief of staff, Matt McCarten, his background in politics and unions and the skills he brings to the party going into this year's election. With a history that includes Labour's battles in Auckland Central in the 1980s, the formation and dissolution of New Labour and the Allliance, as well as helping set up the Maori Party and Mana, the man known as Mattiavelli has a colourful record.
