Islanders may land jobs at Queensland meat processing plant

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Nov. 5, 2012) – As many as 40 Cook Islanders are expected to seek seasonal work at an Australian meat processing plant when Food Safety Operations Queensland sends a recruiter to the island later this month.

A company director, Wayne Herrod, says it has had links with the Cook Islands for six years with 55 Cook Islanders taking up jobs in that time.

The workers have to pay for their own airfares to Australia but the company will help them find accommodation.
