    Many are concerned at the illegal workers in Australian Agriculture but little attention is directed to the cause.

    To me it is quite clear that if we had a well structured and managed Ag visa system there would be no market for illegals. It is a case of market failure due inaction by the current government who can not blame the opposition who have publicly agreed to a bi partisan approach to support a specialised agriculture visa subject to no Australia job loss, paying Tax and obeying Australian OHS. This is all very basic stuff so why have we a problem ?

    Illegals are merely coming in to fill this labour deficiency, wouldn’t you if your home country wage is $ 10 day and Australia is $ 23 per hour plus other tack on benefits ? .
