TREASURER Perrottet under the cover of Covid has been working on a plan to bring back international students. He alleges ‘tens of thousands of people in NSW rely on the international student market for work’
AND that this would ‘also address the rising issue of labour shortages in the state’.
JUST as the high unemployment and underemployment for Australians was beginning to turn around ….
CONTRARY to Perrottet we read a report that Australian job postings had rebounded to 17 September 2021 at 48.6% above their level on 1 February 2020, and are 1.9% below their peak!
So what now!~ FFS!
This alleged ‘rising issue of labour shortages’ has had nothing to do with businesses wanting to maintain low wages and long hours of slavery these overseas students were willing to undertake to gain a Permanent Resident Visa …
The Indian market of 1.3 Billion people happens to be one of the NSW Government’s top priorities, and despite ScOmO’s war on China Perrottet has been working on a strategy to bring back students from China and Nepal.
Commentators question what is being done to manage the transition of local students from high school to university?
And why are our Universities not adequately funded? That places should be allocated for Australian students
And question why our Universities too are being treated like a business corporation
