Concerns about Fiji employing foreign bus drivers

From , 4:04 pm on 4 December 2017

An opposition MP in Fiji says local bus drivers need to be offered more and owners discouraged from hiring drivers from the Philippines.

SODELPA MP Aseri Radrodro says he's been told 36 foreign drivers have been brought in and they are being paid the minimum wage.

The government increased the minimum wage to $FJ2.68 an hour in September but Mr Radrodro told Don Wiseman it should be a lot higher to ensure locals are willing to drive the buses.
