Good employers should not be tainted by the few who exploit

Good employers should not be tainted by the few who exploit migrants
 
Michael Barnett, head of the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, was supporting Government proposals unveiled today to amend the Immigration Act to make it a specific offence to exploit migrants who hold temporary work visas.
 
“All employers who take advantage of employees should be accountable and employees should feel comfortable to report when they believe they are being exploited.”
 
The overwhelmingly majority of good employers should not be tainted by the behavior of the few who attempt to exploit.
 
He strongly agreed that unscrupulous employers who set out to exploit migrant workers should not be tolerated in New Zealand.
