Michael Laws speaks to Martin Taylor, chief executive of HealthCare Providers NZ, about the aged care industry of New Zealand.
Martin points out how much a rest home receives per day and says it's far more economical for the private sector to handle the industry.
He responds to allegations that the industry conditions plus low wages amount to modern-day slave labour. Taylor says he was calling for improved pay clarity as far back as 2005.
Taylor says the country's asset testing should be put to good use when setting the level of subsidies available for those needing aged care.
