Risks and Rewards of allowing seasonal workers from the Pacific into Australia

Title: Risks and Rewards of allowing seasonal workers from the Pacific into Australia
Author(s): Chand, Satish

Description: 
It is time some considered thought was given to allowing businesses short of workers to recruit from neighbouring Pacific island countries. Pacific island nations have an abundant supply of able and keen workers. It is, therefore, a ‘no brainer’ that a well regulated temporary worker scheme has the potential to be a ‘win-win’ for the employers and their employees in a regionally-deregulated labour market. What is less well recognised is the fact that easing of access to workers from neighbouring Pacific can also be a ‘win-win’ proposition for the participating governments.
