Review of the Accredited Employer Work Visa Scheme w John Crocker: February 28, 2024 Review of the Accredited Employer Work Visa Scheme w John Crocker: February 28, 2024, 13.4 MB
Wed 28 Feb 2024

The public service commission recently conducted a review into the Accredited Employer Work Visa, a visa scheme given to foreign workers with job offers from New Zealand-based employers. The review was conducted following a number of incidents, where migrant workers in Aotearoa were found to have been exploited by their employers, with some paying upwards of SIXTEEN-THOUSAND New Zealand dollars to receive visas for non-existent jobs.
The review found that the visa scheme reduced the number of checks Immigration officers were required to perform on employers, which was done to reduce processing times so more workers could be brought into Aotearoa, which ultimately led to the exploitation of workers across the country. 

Oto spoke to John Crocker from Unite Union, a union that advocates for migrant workers amongst a number of groups, who said that there was more to the scheme than what was found in the review.

On Wednesday the 21st of February New Zealand was shocked to learn of the sudden passing of Greens MP Fa'anānā Efeso Collins.

Efeso began his career as a youth worker before joining the Auckland Council as a councillor for the Manukau ward. 

He later ran for Mayor with the endorsement of both Labour and the Greens, before campaigning for the Green party in last year's election.

In his maiden speech Collins highlighted his wish to be a champion for underserved and underprivileged members of our society;

"The government cannot be a bystander to people suffering confusion and disenfranchisement. New Zealand must close the divide between those who have and those who have not, because the reality for my community is that those who have more money often wield more power, more health, more housing, more justice, more access, more canopy cover, more lobbyists with swipe cards, and more time,"

Nicholas spoke to Green Party co-leader James Shaw about the passing of his friend and colleague Fa'anānā Efeso Collins.
