Papua New Guinean workers are second class citizens in their own land. In other countries (say the U.S) there was institutional racism that kept the non-white population out of the top jobs. Not so today.
In Papua New Guinea, we ourselves have kept apartheid-era style systems of pay that discriminate based solely on the color of one's skin. If you are a Papua New Guinean with the same level of education and training, you will get paid 1/20th the salary of an expatriate simply because you are not white.
It is mind-blowingly stupid why we should let this injustice prevail in the 21st century. The only way I see now for a Papua New Guinean to get equal pay with other HUMAN BEINGS dammit - is if he or she emigrates and works abroad.
And I will go mad if I hear one of these idiots with ties in Waigani ask, "WHY THE BRAIN DRAIN?"
