By the first week of November, 100 new Samoa RSE workers should be employed in the four Silver Fern Meat Processing operations in New Zealand including 40 in their new Pacific Plant. Already 135 Samoan RSE workers are on the Sliver Fern’s payroll.
And the company has committed to hire total contingent of 250 Samoans to work for 10 months with them and it’s just rewards for government and the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Labour, (MCIL) the implementing agency for the Seasonal Workers incentives for New Zealand and Australia.
