Samoan seasonal worker warns about infidelity
Apia, SAMOA — A Samoan seasonal worker is warning others to be wise on the job and not fall into infidelity.
A 37-year-old father of two from Poutasi, Taavao Lefua Taavao, joined the Falealili Seasonal Work Programme under the Recognised Seasonal Employers scheme in New Zealand in 2017.
The Samoa Observer spoke with the father-of-two to report on some of the challenges seasonal workers face.
Taavao said in six years working abroad, he has witnessed married men and women cheat on their spouses who are back home in Samoa.
Church communities have raised this issue as well and face the challenge of navigating the consequences that lead to broken families.
Taavao is scheduled to depart Samoa alongside over 400 other men under the Falealili seasonal work program in Australia and New Zealand.
