Fruit picking for backpackers in australia_ ‘this is not a job for cry babies’

THE owner of a NSW fruitpicking farm that has been slammed after a former worker posted a bizarre set of rules on social media claims the list is nearly 20 years old.

The note, which was posted to a popular Sydney backpacker Facebook group but has since been deleted, warns workers must “walk fast at all times” and that “cry babies” and people who “suffer with depression” are not welcome.

According to the note, workers must be “energetic, a fast mover (walk fast at all times) look efficient even if you are not”, “honest and reliable”, “prepared to work from August through to end of January, with no time off other than public holidays” and “able to wear laytex [sic] gloves which we supply, we don’t supply cotton gloves!”.

They must also be “ready to start work at start time, this changes due to light conditions”, with 6am starts in summer and 7:30am starts in winter for four eight-hour days and one six-hour day to make a 38-hour week.

“All staff must carry in their bags at all times a clean shirt, hat, Panadol, the snips you have been supplied with DO NOT leave these at home, females must carry their own sanitary needs at all times,” the note said.

One person said the “only thing that’s missing is ‘must be a robot’”, while another said the rules “just make ya laugh that someone actually though all that up”.

Speaking to news.com.au, the owner of the farm said it was “something written some years back because we had such a lot of problems with people starting here and they just whinged and complained”.

“That’s not current,” she said.
