We know that our community would expect that when they buy meat and vegetables for dinner, or apples and oranges for the kids’ lunch boxes, that what they’re spending their money on is being grown, produced, packed and delivered in an ethical manner, that the people who are handling their groceries are being properly paid and treated fairly in the workplace.

And we’ve heard from farmers and their representatives in Victoria, that they too want to ensure that the people they welcome to their farms to pick produce through labour hire firms are being employed lawfully and being paid according to the standards set out in the Fair Work Act.
