"Sleep with me and my girlfriend or I rape you": The sick ultimatum handed over to a grocer after agreeing to work in a dirty hostel to get his second-grade visa to stay in Australia
- Frances Fairs was threatened with rape while she was working at the Vic Youth Hostel.
- She lived in the area to stay in Australia another year
- Ms. Fairs was forced to flee after only a few weeks, fearing for her safety.
A British backpacker was forced to flee after her boss threatened to rape while she was working in a hostel to get her second-year work-holiday visa.
Frances Fairs said that as soon as she arrived at the Victoria Region Youth Hostel, she knew it would not be easy.
The place was dirty – the stained mattresses were riddled with bedbugs and there were holes in the walls.
However, Mrs. Fairs had to complete 88 days of work in the region to stay in Australia for a second year.
During the first weeks of life and work at the hostel, her boss became increasingly inappropriate and began to make unwanted sexual advances.

Mrs. Fairs felt uncomfortable, but since she had not been paid, she stayed.
She worked tirelessly to wash the sheets and clean the rooms of customers who, like her, fulfilled the visa requirements to stay in the country.
But a few days before Christmas, Mrs. Fairs was forced to flee, fearing for her safety.
"He called me in his office and was like" right, here is the market; you sleep with me and my girlfriend or I rape you, choose one? she told ABC.
She took a taxi to the train station but did not have enough to cover her ticket.
After explaining what had happened to the driver, he let her get on board for free.
& # 39; He said & # 39; "It's okay, you go to the train station. Tell them I left you for free, they will pay you the money, but I'll make sure you get there safely. "
"It was like he had already seen it before," she says.
Mia Ayliffe-Chung died in the bathroom of her hotel room where she ran to escape her murderer
Mia Ayliffe-Chung was brutally stabbed to death in August 2016 by a French backpacker at a Home Hill hostel (the room of the hostel is illustrated).
It is to be feared that incidents similar to those of Ms. Fairs will become more frequent once the work visa is extended.
As of July 1, with the 417 visa, vacationers who work can spend a third year doing additional work.
Rosie Ayliffe urges more regulation after the death of her daughter Mia three months after her trip to Australia.
Mia Ayliffe-Chung was stabbed to death in August 2016 by a French backpacker at a Home Hill hostel, south of Townsville in northeastern Queensland.
Ms. Ayliffe said that the federal government must ensure that every home is secure and that vacation visa holders are not at risk of being exploited.
The Interior Ministry told Daily Mail Australia that the Australian government was determined to protect migrant workers from exploitation, even regardless of their nationality or visa status.
He added that vacationers working throughout Australia were entitled to the same basic rights and guarantees as Australian citizens and permanent residents.
"Employers who commit crimes against temporary residents are subject to Australian criminal law.
"Attacking the exploitation of foreign workers and operating Australia's migration system are operational priorities for the Australian Border Force (ABF)."
"ABF works closely with partner agencies in the field of foreign worker exploitation by applying the full spectrum of enforcement actions, ranging from education to compliance and from surveillance to criminal prosecution. "
