I.  And from Christine Carolan, ACRATH NEO

Things feel tough to me at the moment  … at least until I consider the situation of an overseas worker here on a temporary visa.  Our ACRATH forced labour team are uncovering major needs for accommodation, food and healthcare for Pacific Islanders and people from Timor Leste as they work here in agriculture and at abattoirs. Where is their COVID-19 safety net?”
