Victorian Farmers Federation welcomes skilled migrant announcement
A new agreement will allow Victorian fruit and vegetable producers to have access to skilled migrant workers after a push from struggling farmers amid a labour shortage.
But the Victorian Farmers Federation says it doesn’t go far enough.
Emma Germano, Vice-President of the Victorian Farmers Federation, said it was a start.
“It’s a great announcement, but we’re a little disappointed it doesn’t include field workers because that’s where the greatest shortage is,” she explained.
“We’ll keep working with the government.”
