Day 91 - plight of Filipino immigrant workers

Monday, 23 May 2011 8:20 a.m. by addingtonaction Popular

It seems that a growing number of Filipino immigrant workers living in Addington are in a spot of bother because of the earthquake. They are now being told by NZ Immigration Department that their work permits will not be renewed and they have to return to the Philippines.

This is quite unjust, since these workers and their families have sold up everything when they came to NZ to do a job no one else was prepared to do - working in the aged care homes. Addington has large numbers of Filipi ...

Kia ora, Hello Brighton Folk,

At long last, the face-lift planned for the Mt Pleasant Community Centre website is taking shape.  We intend on rolling out the entire site very soon.  The new MPCC website is far more socially aware, and suits us fine as a community.  One of the newest tools at our disposal is this great new weblog, where we intend on publishing Mt Pleasant News stories as they break.  We also have a new Agenda area, where you can instantly see what is up for discussion.
