The Australian Financial Review (07/01/15) reported a possible ease of entry for skilled foreign workers. This must be a concern for Australian employees who are already facing the consequences of high level unemployment. There are many reasons why skilled workers come to Australia including that we have among the best employment laws in the world. Would it not be better for the Australian Government to promote our valuable employment rights to help existing employees to hold their jobs and unemployed Australians to gain a job?
