'People are crying' - boarders lose hope for state home

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 6 September 2017

A south Auckland boarding house resident has almost given up on waiting for a state house, as the housing crisis grows and waiting lists grow.

The owner of the same boarding house says his tenants are now waiting years, not months for a house. Mike Ross, who owns Favona Lodge in Mangere, says his residents are now almost all permanent tenants.
