VIDEO: Calls for more Kiwi women to enter the construction industry


New Zealand has a huge shortage of construction workers and it's estimated we need more than 60,000 workers in the next three years alone.

And there's a simple solution to that problem… get more females onto building sites. 

Kymberlee Popapa is a prime of example of how that can work. 

She's just completed "Nailing It", a course aimed at teaching women the basics of building at Manukau Institute of Technology and she's already in a job.

She spoke to Duncan Garner.
