FPJ1202F, Leith, R & Davidson, A (2015), Measuring the Efficiency of Horticultural Labour: Case Study on Seasonal Workers and Working Holiday Makers

FPJ1202F, Leith, R & Davidson, A (2015), Measuring the Efficiency of Horticultural Labour: Case Study on Seasonal Workers and Working Holiday Makers, in Farm Policy Journal: Vol. 12 No. 2, Winter, pp. 47-52.

This study estimates the relative efficiency of workers hired under the Working Holiday Visa initiative and the Seasonal Worker Programme, using the payroll data of a horticultural farm in Queensland. The study found that seasonal workers were, on average, significantly more efficient than working holiday makers. However, no conclusions can be made about the impact of these two labour sources on profitability.
