A veteran Maori union leader says the Government should launch a major house-building project to get Maori into work.
Official figures released on Thursday show that the Maori unemployment rate has risen to 15.1% - an increase of 2.3% in three months.
Syd Keepa, the Maori vice-president of the Council of Trade Unions, says there is a huge need for housing.
Mr Keepa says he knows of many families living in one house, and building homes for them
would create work, training - and put a roof over people's heads.
