More Fijians for the Australian Seasonal Work Program

October 19, 2015 4:31 am

90 Fijians are now working in the Australian Seasonal Work Program.

Deputy Secretary for Employment Vilimone Baledrokadroka says this number is expected to increase significantly with two other prospective employers now interested..

“They’re starting off with small numbers initially, right, and we’re hoping to build on it from you know, I supposed they wanna test our system as well, how quickly can we send them workers’’.

Baledrokadroka adds that even more Fijian workers can expect work in Australia with the Pacific quota of 3000 under the program removed earlier this year.
