I met some wonderful international FIFO workers last week on the Crystal Symphony. She was docked in the port of Melbourne.
Today’s report in The Western Australian and on ABC National’s Bush Telegraph give us very little new news about FIFO and its impact on the family but, it does serve to keep the conversation about the impact of FIFO on the family in our minds.
Once again Nicole Ashby from FIFO Families had something interesting and important to say. She called for a longitudinal study that tracks and follows FIFO families across time. Let’s hope this happens soon.
I encourage you to read today’s article and the report issued by the Australian Institute of Family Studies. If this does not suit why not listen to the Bush telegraph discussion?
