Immigration reform: Controversial thresholdsImmigration Reform: Controversial thresholds
The New Zealand government has made crucial changes to the immigration laws, in the hopes of decreasing the record breaking migration figure of 71,300 last year. Immigration minister, Michael Woodhouse, has announced the introduction of a salary threshold that aims to target low skilled migrant workers.
95bFM Reporter Kelly Enright spoke to the minister about this controversial change. She asked what the changes would mean for migrants who are under the threshold, already living here in New Zealand.
Enright also spoke to Council of Trade Union president Richard Wagstaff about his views on the proposed changes to the immigration laws.
