The wage gap with Australia is growing by a dollar every month, Labour says.
Finance spokesman David Parker is citing the latest Australian statistics, which he says shows the average weekly wage across the Tasman has increased by $22.16 since National came to power in 2008.
In March this year it was $1009 compared with $866 in New Zealand.
"Wages in New Zealand aren't growing," he said."Closing the wage gap with Australia was a cornerstone of National's 2008 election promises - the government has stopped talking about it."
