Ban employers who exploit Migrant Workers
ban employers who exploit indain workers -be they students also

By gurmeeta singh
This is disgraceful for a country of NZ But it only happens because it's allowed to happen . I think somewhere in the initial student study agreement ,it should be mentioned that 'of students choose to work , this is the legal rate of pay '.(ie for students ), we also need to target accountability  from the agents , this also arms the student with valuable information . Students need to be familiar with the labour dept .
