80% of RSE Workers Staying for Another Year
With the limitation of our RSE workers unable to get back home, 80% of our RSE team has chosen to stay on for another year. This decision has been mostly made because tourism has been negatively impacted in their home countries so this way they can continue to send money home - they feel very proud to be able to continue to support their families.
At this stage, no more RSE workers will be coming into NZ until our borders open back up. Currently there are around 8,000 RSE workers in NZ. NZ wide employ around 14,000 workers, several months at a time.
