Claims Pilbara resources companies prefer fly-in, fly-out over local workers sparked passionate debate.
Residential is just good business. Workers aren't worrying about their families, friends and partners back in Perth, because they live with them. Residential workers are focused on the job, not counting down the days to get home. Ryan McEwan Some mines don't happen to be anywhere near a town so FIFO is the only way to access them. My husband and son do FIFO to a remote location but we also live in a regional town, not Perth. Sylvia Rapley
The Pilbara relies on volunteers and many disagreed with a statement by Department of Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Wayne Gregson that young people are not doing their share. If the Tom Price Emergency Services Cadet unit is anything to go by, these are our future volunteers. Sad to see the commissioner stating such things .... Nicole Kelly
