La­bor threat to trav­ellers

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

LA­BOR is set to spark a mas­sive pre-elec­tion war with farm­ers over a “dan­ger­ous” union pro­posal to dis­man­tle work­ing hol­i­day visas which threat­ens to “crip­ple” the agri­cul­ture sec­tor.

The Aus­tralian Coun­cil of Trade Unions is us­ing its in­flu­ence to pres­sure Bill Shorten to re­view the scheme with a view to ban back­pack­ers work­ing for a sec­ond year and re­strict work in the first year.
