Indian businesses charging students up to $20k for jobs, visas

From Morning Report, 7:43 am on 8 August 2017

Indian business owners are illegally charging foreign students $20,000 or more for jobs that will get them work and residence visas.

RNZ education reporter John Gerritsen obtained documents from Immigration New Zealand, which say the business owners are deliberately creating connections with private training establishments so they can recruit students.

The documents also describe a case where business diploma students had been employed to work five days a week on Te Puke kiwifruit orchards where they were paid $5 an hour.
