Es muss unbedingt etwas getan werden damit sich solche schlimmen Dinge nicht mehr wiederholen. Auch meine Tochter ist in Australien ums leben gekommen.

Farmers rely on these young eager workers willing to accept low wages, but their human rights are forgotten, ignored, abused .... it’s outrageous and inhumane ... and not very Australian!

These young people need to have this Farmwork more regulated, the Govt needs to take a more proactive stance on the rules surrounding this practice.

Please remember that SHARING A ROOM WITH STRANGERS IN BACKPACKER HOSTELS IS SAME AS ACCEPTING LOLLIES & MONEY FROM STRANGERS, HELPING STRANGERS FIND THEIR LOST DOGS, MEETING INTERNET STRANGERS IN REAL LIFE, ACCEPTING CAR RIDES FROM STRANGERS, GIVING DIRECTIONS TO STRANGERS AND GOING ANYWHERE WITH STRANGERS IN PUBLIC PLACES! When we were little children, we get taught NOT TO ACCEPT ANYTHING FROM STRANGERS AS WELL AS NOT HELPING STRANGERS, NOT GOING ANYWHERE WITH STRANGERS IN PUBLIC PLACES, NOT AGREEING TO MEET INTERNET STRANGERS IN REAL LIFE OR TALKING TO STRANGERS ON INTERNET! Now we should get taught NOT TO SHARE A ROOM WITH STRANGERS IN BACKPACKER HOSTELS ON OUR TRAVELS because we are now adults and are not little children anymore! If you are reading this comment and are planning to stay in backpacker hostels of Australia, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SHARING A ROOM WITH STRANGERS IN BACKPACKER HOSTELS IS SAME AS ACCEPTING LOLLIES & MONEY FROM STRANGERS, HELPING STRANGERS FIND THEIR LOST DOGS, ACCEPTING CAR RIDES FROM STRANGERS, MEETING INTERNET STRANGERS IN REAL LIFE, GIVING DIRECTIONS TO STRANGERS AND GOING ANYWHERE WITH STRANGERS IN PUBLIC PLACES!

This is an urgent need for hundreds of thousands of backpackers. Just because we’re not Australian citizens doesn’t mean we should get treated like slaves.
