Nah, to be at the top I'd have had to be American.

The Filipinas were ranked below me pay wise, but earned enough to be more wealthy in their own country than I was in mine.

Neither here nor there who was richer back in their home country. Point is this differentiation is a sure path the exploitation.

 

In oz itself, there is already plenty of evidence to this. To extend their working holiday visas for a year, backpackers must undertake 3 months work in a rural postcode. Nominally this is to help the rural sector get hard to find labour to help pick crops etc. however there are many reports of the backpackers being grossly under paid because the farmers know they have them over a barrel. 

 

Same in the franchise industry. Employers have been exploiting people on student visas, paying them award salary and then secretly forcing  that student to give back half that salary if they want to keep their job.

 

None of these two groups want to complain as they know if they lose their jobs they are out of the country. So employers take the piss.

 

And all this is in Australia. 

 

You want a guest worker system, good luck, as exploitation will be rife, and cause they can, employers will take a foreigner over a local, cause locals have rights and complain.

Newstart Allowance (dole) = $7/hour; minimum wage = $19/hour.  If people prefer the dole to working you'd have to question their sanity

Simultaneously taking your job and on welfare at the same time.

Hanson P will tell you plenty of jobs, people are just too lazy to work

that would be the biggest load of bs ever.  Take a good look at the age group she is popular with.  People who were young when there were plenty of jobs and life was easy.  They made a boatload of money in the 80's.

I fail to understand why anyone is allowed to immigrate unless they have a job to go to ( and at same rate/ conditions as Australians ) and only if no Australians to do the job.

I was interested in moving to Canada to work in the 90s, and had a job lined up. Changed my mind when informed that I would lose the job if a Canadian was found to do that work, even after I had moved and started work!

Well said but consider that Morrison is now saying that he will cut family stream and increase the new 245 for the farmers.  The same farmers who will work them like last century's slaves and pay next to nothing for working in the sun and rain.  They will take the work gladly because it is a lot more than they can earn in their own country but unknowingly this will drag down every working class Australian with them until we have a lot more poor people making the rich richer.  Already most young people cannot even dream of owning their own home any more.

The new generation are too soft, IMO, to willingly work on farms, long hours, hard physical work etc, and if it was the outback, even more reluctant- might not be an internet connection for their phone.

No, there are just better paid jobs, where the farmers don't contract you at minimum wage through dodgy labour hire companies, and then, cause you are on a farm with no ready access to accomadation, charge you most of your 'wage' for a shared room in a run down house.

I know a number of people who receive less than $19 p.h., no super, no sick pay or holiday pay - sound familiar? - in and around Noosaville which is not a low cost area. Government minimum wage is a dream for many employed by small businesses in the restaurant / hospitality sector as the government well knows, yet extremely poor with enforcement.

Bludgers who won't work because of too generous dole,  stupidly high minimum wage that cripples small business.... Want me to go on? 

Go on please, but do so from an informed point of view, and economic and evidenced based one would be good

That's okay by me when the official narrative is don't spread vicious lies and hate speech designed to poison the minds of ignorant social media lemmings, who would believe literally anything you serve them.

Ignorant social media lemmings? Careful, or you'll be getting your collar felt by the thought police for hate speech!

A joke, right? The vast majority of people in the world believe the introduction of Apartheid was the death wish, for a country with incredible potential.

 

Perceived ownership of stolen land, unchallenged access to the vast mineral wealth of a massive country, you can hardly admire the people that gained the most from separate development, exactly what these white supremacists are advocating in Australia...

Where are these people advocating this from??

Must be on broadcasts I do not access or other media unfamiliar to me

And yet New Zealand has introduced its own form of economic apartheid, the "Treaty of Waitangi settlements" whereby the Maori are handed back land that can be used for primary industry, when the levers of political and economic power are in secondary and especially tertiary industry

New migrants will not be settled in existing cities. Rural areas will be designated...

 

Tell me, will these people be allowed on your beaches in Sydney? Will they need passbooks, to show they have permission to be in white areas? That is what they are...
