Housing squalor in the spotlight
The fight against squalor is being waged on two fronts: against the deplorable conditions in many boarding houses, and against NZ's deplorable rate of child poverty. Breakfast talks to Coalition to End Homelessness co-chair Corie Haddock, and Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei.

KiwiSaver tweaks on the cards
The government has signalled more change to Kiwisaver, potentially making the scheme compulsory, and tying it to National's asset-sale policy. Breakfast asks the chair of Workplace Savings NZ, David Ireland, if the changes are necessary.

Retail sector feels the pinch
As more Kiwis hunt down bargains online, the NZ retail sector is feeling the pinch. Just how bad is the problem, and does it present its own opportunities? James Gilbert from e-Retail specialists Solutionists, and Jamie Whiting from Barkers clothing, join Breakfast to share their ideas.

Young Guns
If you're not enrolled in KiwiSaver, you could well be soon. The Government's looking at automatically enrolling workers into the scheme whether you've started a new job or still in the same one. Breakfast speaks with National MP Simon Bridges and Labour MP Jacinda Ardern about the idea.

20/20 Correspondent Emma Keeling joins Breakfast on the couch to discuss her investigation into a controversial new idea at one Women's Refuge that aims to reunite women and children with the abusive men in their lives.
