Modern Day Slavery: Employment Conditions For Foreign Fishing Crews In New Zealand Waters

The New Zealand government has recently made significant changes to the way employment conditions are controlled. While these changes are a welcome advance, legal and practical difficulties in enforcing the new guidelines mean there is more work to be done before New Zealand can claim a clear conscience on the matter.
