Watch: Care workers await Court of Appeal decision over 'subsidy' pay

More than 30,000 respite care workers are keenly awaiting one of New Zealand's highest courts to decide if they are worth more than $3 an hour. Jan Lowe, from Paraparaumu, north of Wellington, was paid a "subsidy" of $75 for 24-hour shifts as an in-home care relief worker for seriously ill or disabled clients, work she began in the 1990s.
