I Don’t Believe Them! By James Reed

We are always told, like for decades, that the fruit industry needs overseas labour to pick fruit because Australians will not do it. Has anyone ever tested this claim? I would like to be given the funds to see how many unemployed I could recruit, and I would like to audit employment agencies to see if they are really looking to supply work for Australians. It always struck me as immigration bs. Cheaper labour, less conditions etc. Offer decent pay, for hot boring work,  and see the positions filled by eager locals.
