Minister blames employers for worker shortages

NewstalkZB reports:

Hospitality New Zealand says it’s at a loss over comments from the new Immigration Minister.

has accepted some concerns the sector’s raised over foreign worker shortages.

But he says businesses should be considering how to make low-wage with insecure working conditions more attractive places to work.

Hospitality New Zealand Chief Executive Julie White told they’re certainly paying more than they were, with average hourly rates in the sector above $24.

She says they need government help in accessing more migrant workers to fill gaps.

always say that any shortage of workers is because employers do not pay enough. So by that logic, the massive shortage of doctors and nurses in hospitals is because his Government isn’t paying them enough?

I don’t know why Labour is so anti-immigration.
