The research, carried out for IRD by Research New Zealand, was based on anonymous interviews with 420 tradespeople in Auckland, including builders, electricians and painters. It followed a marketing campaign by IRD targeting those operating in Flatbush, Takanini, Silverdale and Albany.
How many builders electricians and painters are women?
There are about 30% more working women in New Zealand than men, and none of those women would engage in any work that could remotely be referred to as a trade or would have a cash economy going on under the table?
