Nobody of us got a contract or payslips. I got my payslips months after I quit, but just after threatening him with going legal ways. Some people I worked with didn’t get paid in weeks and when they asked him for their money he always lied, saying stuff like “I transfer it tonight”. But he never did. I haven’t gotten my superannuation yet and I quit 3 months ago.
To the people who should pick figs he said they could easily do 6 boxes /hour (which would be about 18$), but that was utopian for the most people. At some days there were so few figs on the trees that a lot people just did 1 box/hour.
Dutchy would always pretend as if he really cares for the backpackers, but he actually is insincere and would tell you anything just to make a quick buck.
And he abuses his position to hit on female employees, saying inappropriate things like “I like your ass!”
