Kōrero: Workforce composition

Working in a new country

Immigration, especially from Britain and other European countries, caused the New Zealand workforce to grow rapidly after the Second World War. Not all immigrants were impressed with their first sight of their new workplaces. This clip is from a 1950 film about an English migrant arriving to work on a hydroelectric project at Lake Pūkaki in the South Island’s Mackenzie Country.
