Australian government to review Pac seasonal worker absconding posters after public backlash

Michael Rose speaks to Tahlea Aualiitia at ABC Pacific Beat about a recent campaign aimed at stopping Pacific seasonal workers from absconding from their jobs.

“If the government really values its relationship with the Pacific and the great work being done by Pacific workers,” he says, “we can only hope that they’re listening to the criticisms that are rightfully being levelled at them right now.”

A spokesperson from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade told the ABC they were reviewing the images and text following external feedback.
