AU: Fruit company in Tasmania turns its back on Pacific Island Worker Scheme

Hansen Orchards Managing Director Howard Hansen says the company waited 12 months for a response after applying for 100 Pacific island workers.

Howard Hansen says they were eventually offered 10 to 15 workers and were told it was because the company was a "high risk" employer.

CEO of Hansen Orchards Jake Norris says the company will think twice about applying for workers under the scheme in future because of the red tape involved.
