Why this mum became a tradie

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:30 pm on 15 March 2019

We know we have a tradie shortage at the moment, and one of the areas that could address that is growing the number of women in jobs - at the moment only around 10 percent of apprentices are female. 

Hera Eruera is one of those women. She was a stay-at-home mum when she decided she needed a job to support her family. 

She was the only woman in her plumbing course, but is now an apprentice.
