Napier welders being paid $3 an hour, legally | Newshub

"Newshub can reveal four Indonesian welders working at a Napier sawmill have been getting paid little more than $3 an hour."
"It's not illegal; in fact, our current visa rules allow it."
"So Napier Pine technically hasn't done anything wrong in terms of underpayment, but researcher Dr Glenn Simmons, who's met the men, says he's concerned their passports were taken."
""Normally they're retained simply as a control mechanism because individuals won't move far from where their pass books are, even if they don't possess them," he says."
