My offer to Seeka Kiwifruit

 In 2008 I worked with Mr Ali, a devout Moslem man in the packhouse as a grader and a packer, earning $13 per hour. I told the workers I would try to get them another $10 per hour for the season. It  has not been achieved yet.

In 2009 I worked for VLS, Seeka's lab for $13.50 hr and as a grader for $14 per hour. Pruners earn $13.50 per hour, and like Uncle, a retired school teacher from Pakistan, work 10 hrs a day 7 days a week for a take home pay of around $700.

 I charged Uncle, who usually lives in his own house in Auckland with his married daughter, $70 pw for rent.

 My argument is that the economy is stagnant, and failing because agricultural workers receive low wages, while profits flow to the rich.

Seeka employ around 3,000 people.

Pickers, I'm told, earned $1.5 per bushel this year. Bins take between 30 minutes and 90 minutes to fill, and contain usually around 16 bushels. 10 bins per day is good going but hard work. Not all the picking is easy. Growers pay around $22 per bin to the contractor.
