    Australia to Tackle Skills Shortage

    Australia said on Sunday it was relaxing its migration programme to allow more skilled workers into the country where the jobless rate is at a three-decade low and most companies face a labour shortage.

    Once again, at the expense of the locals who are more deserving. Is the labour cheaper? :

    I read somewhere, it might have been this site, that for every 1 Australian leaving Sydney -2 Immigrants fill the spot. From which region would these so-called 'skilled' workers be coming from?

    I don't have time for this European way of thinking. If Australia's to become a services-based economy, we needn't be internationally competitive.

    well as much as i don't like it.......in my trade most of the boilermakers and machinists are older people and there is something like half of all apprentices give up before they finish their trade!

    so in a way we do need some of these people.....not all get to stay

    i trained some Indians to do my old job in Kalgoorlie nice people(but i don't want one in my family thanks)
    we also have two at my work here in Tassie......why because we have got to the point where tradesmen don't want to do the work any more OR there are only total bludgers left not working!.......so who's going to do the work?!
    Tasmanian twice the heads!!.......twice the intelligence!?

    Whilst this post is a bit old it holds even greater relevance in 2011

    Firstly this business of being internationally competitive is absolute nonsense in the 50s and 60s Australia was the leader in almost(excluding very high tech military and space) every industry in the world and was practically the food basket for the world. Why? Because we employed and skilled up our own and had descent supporting education not the edumucation today!

    We also had a strong regulation on immigration not just accepting mass hordes of illegals or taking in mass amounts of "skilled" immigrants. Thus Businesses and Govts were forced to invest IN the PEOPLE WE ALREADY HAD!
    Today this is as Dick Smiths Documentary proved dissapearing with 6 million Australians underskilled and the youth unemployment and general underemployment quite high. We even have 36,000 youth on the streets and most White or Aboriginal. It is a disgrace that a government allows big business to bring in cheaper non-unionised foreigners yet abandons the many of their own!

    So for the dutchman who posted originally your right our government has opened the immigration quite ridiculously and all for $ and foreign interests(mostly China) with the victims being Aussies.

    Why they dont employ and skill up the many Whites who are forced aside by cheaper foreigners is the real racism against us native Australians. As for the Aboriginals they need to form their own party get off their buts and demand for their own employment and industries if their race is ever going to survive.

    In all honesty it should be Australia Skilled and Employed First not GREED

    The skills shortage was entirely prevantable and was caused both by governments and by business.

    On the government side, the closure of the technical schools, schools of mines, institutes of technology and the gutting of TAFE has made a technical education more difficult to obtain, and trade policies which have largely destroyed the manufacturing sector and tons of skilled jobs have made a blue collar job seem less attractive, so less people even try.

    On the business side, entry level positions leading to advancement that don't require a university education have largely disappeared, as has a lot of the on the job training that used to be offered. A lot of businesses nowadays are not willing to invest in training employees; it's cheaper to import Ranjit than spend a couple of years training John. Where apprentices are used they are often misused as cheap unskilled labour, used to sweep up and not actually trained like they are supposed to be which is why half of them drop out. With the exception of the mines, wages for blue collar work have dropped quite significantly when you consider inflation, and that again makes the jobs less attractive to Australians.

    The skills shortage will never be solved if things carry on as they are, because as soon as all the Indians you've brought in retire, you'll need to bring in more, since there's no effort made in training here.

    Of course it was preventable the whole point of destroying manufacturing and other skills here and sell em overseas was both to entice foreigners of those nations that recieved these offshoring to bring their buddies here thus not only creating a skills shortage here but offering a quick solution in return!

    This mass planned effort I believe by some in govt and big business is to see the Aussie either extinct or a destitute in his own lands which will eliminate unions who are being priced off and create cheap labour market and a eventual dumping ground. Australia OUR HOME is effecitively becoming a wasteland with us being treated like the waste

    I have seen Education diminish more and more each yr and your right on about more indians servicing more indians like Dick Smith says its Out of control

    We have to get a Nationalist Peoples Party in govt with support for an Aboriginals Party to get both the people of this land up and going or we will both face extinction and annhilation at the hands of Foreign Greed

    So who would be interested in a party I have mentioned?
