    The forestry industry says there are still a number of issues with the work visa programme

    The forestry industry says there are still a number of issues with the work visa programme


    The government has announced a new employer-led work visa to help fill skill shortages, reduce exploitation, and improve conditions.

    Forest Industry Contractors Association chief executive Prue Younger says it doesn't address a big issue for them.

    She says the industry can bring migrants in for three years but then they get sent home for a year before they can get a new visa.

    Younger says it's not sustainable for them and costs money.
