Minister for Employment, Parveen Bala

Minister for Employment, Parveen Bala has issued a stern warning to the 198 Fijian workers preparing to leave for the Pacific Australian Labour Mobility (PALM) Scheme that infidelity will not be tolerated.

This was after he met a woman in Savusavu complaining about her husband having an affair in Australia.

Bala then told his Director in Labasa to talk to the woman and find out the man’s name and to make sure that he is on the next flight back home.

The Minister told the workers that the (PALM) Scheme that they are going for will directly benefit many of our Fijian families, their communities, and our economic growth.

He says the families back home will reap the benefits of their hard work when they send money through remittances to improve their family’s livelihood.

Bala also spoke about questions being asked if families can join them in Australia.

He stated that his team is currently in consultation with their partners on how this program will work.

The 198 workers that will be leaving our shores soon will be employed by 8 approved employers in the horticulture, hospitality, and meat works industry.
