Indonesian guest-workers in Australia

from Wendy
There was a strange news item on the radio this morning which I might update if there is more information. A group of Indonesian guest-workers in Australia are being paid $40 a day to dig ditches in the desert, now that's way under the normal pay here. But listen to this; they are working for Halburton, that gross American company! So who gaved permission and organised this? The current immigration policy is not to have guest workers from places like Fiji or Tonga but apparently it's okay for Indonesians to come over. Very strange. And that American company, well, the mind boggles? And this news compells me to bloggle I guess!
