DESPITE grappling with a crippling labour shortage, farmers in the agriculture sector are at odds over a proposal to hire ex-convicts as workers.,
Fruit farmers, who say they need 20,000 workers to work their orchards, are in favour of the proposal, but the vegetable farmers, who need up to 30,000 workers, are hesitant after having seen their workers, particularly foreign hands, abscond to other sectors.
