Anthony Gough (property developer) points out that half the people working on some of his projects come from the Phillipines. I have no problem with that because virtually all building work is skilled & being young and fit is a help too. And same goes for the dairy farms I guess. And, as Gough says some of those Kiwi born people sitting on pavements (begging) look young and fit enough to be trained up to do building. Whether some would pass a drugs test is an entirely different question.
However, I do have a problem with the number of unskilled immigrants doing jobs such as cleaning and stacking shelves in the supermarkets. This is the category of immigrant that Labour and NZ First appear to be targeting. It seems that Winston Peters has had to swallow a dead rat & go along with Labour's more moderate immigration reduction targets.
