Maori and Pasifika unemployment up again

Latest Household Labour Force Survey (HLFS) shows the number of Maori out of work has risen for the fourth consecutive quarter to 13.9%, up from 13.4%.

Unemployment numbers for our whanunga from Te Moana Nui a Kiwa have jumped from 13.8 to 16%.

This jump has been labelled 'unexpected' but is a reflection of poorly poor-forming world and local economies.

Tough times for too many although those already wealthy just seem to get richer...
