Child Prostitute in New Zealand

Girls as young as 13 are working as prostitutes in the area of South Auckland, according to a member of parliament. The MP stated in a radio interview that she has interviewed Pacific Island girls who have stated that they make up to $496 to $662 (600 to 800 New Zealand Dollars) a night.

The young girls stated that they can work only several days a week and find the sex trade more lucrative than school or regular jobs.  The MP stated that some of the children working as prostitutes have run away from home.

(More under the table jobs and criminal profits.)
