***The new 1.5 x median Critical Worker Category***
 

On 14 March 2022, we got the pendulum-swing confirmation that getting workers into New Zealand.  had just got a whole lot easier. Previously, employers had to jump the 8m high bar to get in workers.  The fine print was so near impossible and the decisions frustratingly inconsistent.  From 14 March, it has become possible to get in workers earning 1.5 x the median wage.  That, currently, is $84,240 for a 40 hour week.  Go to our blog to see the latest post on this category and how it works.
