From Checkpoint, 5:18 pm on 31 May 2022

The Productivity Commission says migrant workers' visas should not be tied to an employer, and Immigration must be based on how well the country can absorb new arrivals.

It is among 24 recommendations, including a greater role for Te Tiriti o Waitangi in settlement policy and regular government statements setting out policy on immigration.
