Temporary Skilled Migration Has No Impact on Jobs for Australian Workers

Temporary skilled migration has not reduced job openings or conditions for workers in Australia, but the revolving door political answer to international workers has frustrated firms, an industry report has seen.

CEDA Report Details 

The report from the Economic Development of Australia Committee (C.E.D.A), announced on 15 July 2019, told that high skilled migrants, especially those on temporary skilled work visas, have been an overwhelmingly net positive for the economy of Australia and not had any negative influence on either the pay scales or rates of participation of native workers of Australia.

Meanwhile, the report told that despite economic proof implying migration is a positive, Australian government have reacted to the concern of community with a apparent revolving door of reports, reviews, and repeated policy changes to Australian program temporary skilled migration.

 The most recent policy reform was the substitution of the subclass 457 visa scheme with the new visa scheme temporary skill shortage, which is implemented from March 2018. The PM Malcolm Turnbull told the modification was meant to assure that Australians had a preference for jobs in Australia because the subclass 457 scheme had lost its reliability.

The latest visas are open for 2 to 4 years for a controlled range of professions, for which most would need mandatory labor market testing.

Melinda Cilento, C.E.D.A chief executive, told reforms like those proposed in 2017, which made it more difficult for individuals on a temporary skilled worker visa to transformation to a PR visa, could discourage the finest and talented workers  who are coming to Australia.
