Seasonal worker assists family business

Saturday, February 03, 2018

Update: 3:01PM AFTER seven months of work in New Zealand as a seasonal worker, Josua Wainigasau returned to Fiji with $18,000 in savings to assist his family's business.

The 21-year-old from Vatulele village in Cakaudrove was engaged in apple and grapes picking under the New Zealand Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) program.

A Government statement today said he used his savings to purchase a hybrid car which would assist in his family business and other commitments.

Mr Wainigasau said he appreciated the opportunity provided by the Government that enabled him to achieve the goal he had set.

Minister for Employment, Productivity and Industrial Relations Jone Usamate commended Mr Wainigasau for his achievement in supporting his family's business.
