If you’re a shearer and want to make some quick money then Australia wants you and is prepared to pay. Kiwi shearers and wool handlers are being targeted by Australians as shearer shortage starts to bite across the Ditch. The work starts immediately and is guaranteed until the end of the year with shearers being paid $3.75 a sheep and experienced wool handers $75 per run. Shearers are also being poached by other gangs with ridiculous offers of $4.50 a sheep. Experienced shearers can shear 200 a day. You need to be double vaccinated… there would be no quarantine on arrival… but if you want to come home that might be a struggle with our MIQ system.
