    It appears many Kiwis are not interested in rural work

    It appears many Kiwis are not interested in rural work


    The agricultural sector continues to struggle to attract workers they need to fill gaps created by ongoing closed borders.

    Despite some exemptions, the process of getting people through the border has proven complicated and difficult.

    However Rural Contractors New Zealand chief executive Roger Parton says employing locals is not a straight forward solution.

    He says most Kiwis don't appear to be interested in the remote and rural lifestyle.
