The Government has made a program more accessible!

The National Farmers’ Federation has welcomed the announcement of new measures to support farmers and seasonal workers in accessing the Seasonal Worker Program to address labor shortages at harvest time.

It comes after the Federation previously identified barriers to participation in the program with Chief Executive Tony Maher saying they’re pleased the government has been listening to industry representatives, and making a commitment to address the issues.

Mr Mahar says one of the challenges has been the upfront costs the program imposes on employers, and he’s pleased the government intends to pilot ways to lower these costs.
