McGowan's Hard Border Arguments Not Washing With WA's ‘Forgotten FIFOs

South Australian employed but Perth-based FIFO workers are still seething over the state’s hard border policy they claim is continuing to keep families apart unnecessarily.

Perth men Lee Greaves and David Edwards work on the same South Australian mine and both said their past six months had been harrowing for their mental health, describing themselves and those in similar situations as the ‘forgotten FIFOs’.

Mr Greaves was in Melbourne in March celebrating his wedding anniversary when COVID-19 slammed the borders shut.
