Any NZers Want To Work In Philippines?

This made me laugh

Details of a working-holiday agreement between New Zealand and the Philippines are expected to be announced during the visit to New Zealand of Philippines President Benigno S. Aquino III.

The Philippines has about 10 million nationals working abroad, many doing the type of jobs others won’t do.

New Zealand is home to about 35,000 Filipinos, says the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, many working as farm labourers in the dairy industry and in rest homes.

Cannot see it being a two-way thing and looks like Fonterra and bludging farmers have just got a cheap supply of labour incoming.

Wonder how the Unions will react?

New Zealand’s unemployable 16-25 year olds should be shipped over so they can see what their future is really like.
