Sounds like foreign workers are being ripped off and treated like slaves in Tauranga…
…on top of that abuse of labour rights, here’s a question I have put to the Ministry of Social Development this morning about rumours The Daily Blog are hearing out of Tauranga about beneficiaries being threatened with benefit cuts if they don’t sign legally questionable contracts for the very same fruit picking industry that is currently abusing these migrant workers.
The Ministry of Social Development say they will get back to me with an answer. We will be following this allegation closely and will report once the Ministry have responded.
Tick tock, tick tock.
