$6000 incentive might help Australian farmers fill labor shortages

While Australia is still suffering from severe workforce shortages, the government is offering a sweetener for those that step up to the plate. Australians are being offered a $6000 incentive to lure them to the regions to fill critical labor shortages. A new federal government initiative promises jobseekers they are eligible for up to $2000 in relocation assistance when they complete 40 hours of agricultural work in a fortnight.

If workers stay in the job and complete 120 hours over at least four weeks, they will be reimbursed up to $6000. Temporary visa holders will also be eligible for handouts worth $650 and $2000, respectively.
