Compares Australia's pilot seasonal worker scheme with Kiribati, Tonga and Vanuatu, introduced Nov 2008, with NZ's Recognised Seasonal Employer (RSE) scheme introduced Apr 2007. Assesses the success of the schemes, noting how they tend to favour the employment needs of the receiving nations rather than the development goals of the sending Pacific states.
