Thank you, Rosie Ayliffe, “Honouring Mia” (March 27-28), for drawing our attention to the failings of our Australian backpacker system. I am ashamed to confess I was not aware of the “culture of exploitati­on” and unscrupulo­us practices endured by visitors to our country, who do so much to support the Aussie agricultur­al industry. Thank you also for campaignin­g for better regulation­s and the registerin­g of inspected workplaces and Government-led training regarding Australian workplace practices, and personal safety.
