The Government wants to turn down the tap on temporary and skilled migrant workers and open the door for high-roller investors and workers who can fill genuine job shortages. Economic Development Minister Stuart Nash told an audience of industry leaders and economic experts at the Beehive that we can’t afford to simply turn on the tap to the previous immigration settings. Federated Farmers President Andrew Hoggard says he gets upset with the implication that dairy industry workers are unskilled. He says the fact that the three top prize winners at the Dairy Industry Awards were migrants shows you how skilled they are.
