Abstract

Seasonal labour connects temporary migrants to regional Australian communities through the specific conditions attached to temporary visas. Regional areas and temporary migrants are mutually interdependent; regional areas often depend on seasonal labour to sustain the agriculture industry and unskilled labour allows seasonal workers (typically temporary migrants and holiday workers) to satisfy visa requirements. In these contexts, length of stay positions temporary workers as being permanently in-between places. Temporariness in this sense is marked as a ‘condition’ or ‘status’ that contributes to the marginalisation of transient groups such as working holidaymakers, who typically maintain far less claim over space than more long-term residents.
