Minister for Employment, Jone Usamate has lauded the exemplary record of the best group of Fijian seasonal workers in New Zealand.
These Fijian workers, who hail from Wayalailai, Yasawa, are employed under the New Zealand Recognized Seasonal Employer (RSE) Worker Scheme.
This commendation comes after Usamate received praise from employers Pick Hawkes Bay and RJ Flowers, who are the two major Hawkes Bay based apple producers during his tour to the farms, orchards and company offices early this week.
Pick Hawkes Bay general manager Anthony Rarere highlighted that the 18 workers are the best group in New Zealand because of their productivity.
Usamate visited the Wayalailai Group at their Hastings-based apple orchard and was very proud about their good performance that has brought recognition to their families, vanua and to the whole of Fiji.
