Turning the Gaze: Let's Talk to the Workers
This paper discusses a research project that was undertaken to explore workers' experiences about their work-related injury and illness. We adopted a Kaupapa Maori approach for the fieldwork and the analysis. A number of Maori in the labour market have had different experiences from non-Maori, in particular Maori women. Since the 1984 Rogermomics era, workers have had to tolerate structural and political changes that have not benefited the majority of New Zealanders, especially tangata whenua. This research provided a "voice" for workers to share their stories and experiences in their work-places.
