#148 A solution to farm labour pains
We have a massive labour shortage in Australia - what are the solutions?
We are joined by Ronald Recinos, the Guatemalan Ambassador to Australia. Guatemala has a temporary guest worker program with Canada. Thousands of Guatemalans travel to Canada every year to work on agricultural and horticultural properties.
Guatemala would like to offer the same to Australia. Would this work? Let's have a chat and see.
