The Pacific island workers shouldnt be here in the first place if lazy Australians are not so choosy with their jobs (maybe the government should stop the dole and get their arse picking fruits). The farmers needs help so the Pacific island workers are helping, not just for the farmers but for the country as well. They are tax payers and are paying for the dole bulgers that we have so much of, in Australia. If we pick our own Australian produce, it will dramatically reduce the unemployment rate. The government is introducing a scheme (dole) and find resolution else where.....Do you think preventative is better than cure.
