This piece massively misrepresents what happened at this 'expo'. It was blatant exploitation of the situation in Ireland. There were 4 companies recruiting for NZ and we were charged €15 in. A total disgrace, which is what this event was. Not a good representation of New Zealand.

I worked as an occupational therapist in NZ until I was fed up with the workplace bullying. Many others followed me overseas and will not return. I wish NZ well in repairing their appalling workplace relations legislation and warn others about the workplace culture in health and education.

I read the comments of readers who were spot on correct, and watched the video. I do hope there are no false pretenses offered to these job seekers, as getting a job offer and actually getting a work visa is miles apart from each other. employers also offer lower salaries to immigrants.

Im an electrician have been since 2006, although ive had work the last year (except for a few weeks where its slow last year 12 weeks all up) (getting paid peanuts ) ive now been unemployed for the last month while companies full of apprentices and foreign agency trade assistants are getting paid peanuts to do all the work in place of competent tradespeople who companies are unwilling to pay decent wages, im now being told by winz that i should be looking for any available work such as drainage or petrol attendants because if i dont accept any available work they will cut my benefit,so how is there a shortage?

I've been an electrician in this country for almost 30 years. I'm registered, experienced, and skilled, but currently working as a labourer doing flooring, because I earn as much as what I was being an electrician.To date, I feel like choosing to become an electrician in 1984 was the worst decision I've ever made. Yeah, right, there's been not much shortage of work, but the peanuts that employers pay, has hardly been enough to cover costs.Seriously, I'm a hard worker, I'm pretty good at my job, I always do my best, but the employers seem to have wages sorted between them, and as has happened to myself in the past, when the positions aren't been filled, more workload and pressure is put onto those who are employed.John Key. Why would anyone want to go and do a trade? For $2000 dollars worth of tools? You are dreaming. I have almost $1000 hanging on my tool belt.What needs to happen, is that the tradesmen need to be paid a proper wage, so that young people look at them, and think, "Yeah, that's what I want."That's what I did. Unfortunatly for me I was born just a few years too late, and missed the gravey train.Oh yeah, I grew up with it, as a child. Was promised the earth etc..Well, wasn't the way aye.Now I live in a campervan. I'm still eligible for a first home loan. I guess I'll never get to have that roof over my head.I could carry on, but I won't. Been carrying on about how we're gonna run out of tradies for years. I'm tired of listening to myself whine. Tired of being a broke sparky. Tired of living in a caravan. Just tired.

Like I've emailed last year, There's the skilled workers here. It's just our employers & stuck up government don't want to pay to get them to christchurch. I have my class 1, 2 & 4 licences. Yet, I bet the employers & government wont pay to get me down to christchurch from auckland, get me into a flat & set it up or help get basic transport to get to work. If companies like beca, cdhb or downer can afford to fork out thousands of dollars each to recruit in europe, then why can't they afford to pay that money in nz to get nz workers?! Ah, that's right. They want local workers. Local workers from europe??! Our employers & government are all so screwed up, they can't tell which dribles the most s#@t, the mouths or their ass.
