By Murray Hunter, published 14/10/2021

Pacific Island governments are also critical of the ASEAN scheme as they see the scheme taking potential jobs of the existing Pacific Islands labour pool.

Get Australian bludgers working. No work. No dole.

Good on the Malaysian government for preventing their people from joining this back door immigration scheme, and getting their own locals to work in their own country, just as the Australian government should be doing. Australia would import workers from a country that is itself importing workers! Idiotic!

There would seem to be a lot of malicious misinformation around this subject, especially from some mischievous Malaysian advocates, who have never forgiving us for our involvement in shutting down the CT movement in Malaysia?

With friends like that? Who needs enemies? We need to crack on with robot research! So we can replace all imported farm labour with robots. None of who will complain! Or play partisan politics with this issue, for squalid domestic political purposes?

I was surprised to see an air conditioned coach parked in a large orchard. That was after a contingent of Pacific workers was flown in by charter plane then put up in quarantine for a fortnight. Did the farmer pay for all that? I suspect it was a government agency. The farmer donates thousands to political parties then gets millions back.

The idea is that the guest workers return to their home country in the off season. I suspect policies will allow permanent settlement and family re-unions along with several other channels of backdoor immigration. The costs then expand to include government welfare, health and education. I notice many orchards are being redesigned for machine picking perhaps to reduce the labour requirement.
