Prime Minister Julia Gillard cited rapid growth in 457 visa numbers, a consequence of employers rorting the system with Australian workers missing out on jobs …

Mr Stoner said the state government would campaign to have the system simplified.

IT would seem with the influx of investment visa holders gaining residency with business and real estate investment in Australia that:

-a growing number of these IT employers were accessing their overseas workers to exploit

WHY wouldn’t they deny this? Cough … cough …

NSW Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner said the federal government’s attacks on 457 visas had ”not been clever”.

”The last thing we want, if we are going to position Sydney as a global talent hub, is for there to be a perception that Australia doesn’t welcome the sort of people we want to come here,” he said.

”The last thing we want, if we are going to position Sydney as a global talent hub, is for there to be a perception that Australia doesn’t welcome the sort of people we want to come here,” he said.

Temporary skilled migration visas – known as 457 visas – allow employer-sponsored workers to stay in Australia for four years.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has cited rapid growth in 457 visa numbers to back her concern that employers were rorting the system and Australian workers were missing out on jobs.

The information technology sector has been accused of using 457 visas to fill technical vacancies with low-price overseas workers, at the expense of workers in Australia, an accusation IT employers denied last week.

Mr Stoner said the state government would campaign to have the system simplified.

Local workers alone could not meet the economy’s needs, he said.

”Even if we had an island, xenophobic view of the world, the world has changed. People’s workplaces are not in one city or in one nation. They are around the world.’
