A panel of different
interest groups will present current and future employment
issues to political party representatives at an employment
forum in Auckland.
While Auckland City's population and
labour force are growing quickly, there are concerns that
new job creation is not keeping up with the high rate of
labour force growth.
As a result, the unemployment rate
in Auckland City is growing above the regional and national
average. Auckland City's unemployed also have a unique
ethnic make-up with a high proportion of European and Asian,
a reasonably high proportion of Pacific Island peoples, and
compared to national figures, a relatively low level of
Maori. In addition, there are a large number of Asian
immigrants with tertiary degrees and professional
qualifications registered as unemployed.
be sent to a wide range of groups about the forum, and the
public is welcome to attend. The forum will be held at the
Pioneer Women's Facility, corner High Street and Freyberg
Place at 3.45pm, Wednesday 20 October.

We know that, with the right leadership, the right policies and the right direction, together New Zealanders can make this an even better country," says incoming PM Christopher Luxon. More
The Labour Party has called for an urgent ceasefire in Gaza & Israel to halt the appalling attacks and violence so that a journey to a lasting peace can begin. “Along with other New Zealanders we are appalled by the devastation and loss of life. We recognise the grief of communities in New Zealand who have connections with those in the conflict,” says Chris Hipkins. More
MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
