457 Visas, unemployment and corruption


Mmmmmm 2nd breakfast

Anyone reading SMH or the Age over the last few days will have seen the massive fraud and corruption going on with the 457 visas.

A known mullah with links to the Taliban bringing in his mates under the 457 Visa system to do who knows what?
Department figures showing that up to 90% of 457 Visas from Afghanistan and Pakistan are in some way corrupted. Massive ongoing corruption of employers and officials is also occurring.

Proven information that companies hiring people from overseas then getting secret payments (if around $50,000 in some cases).

Reeteker Aijan and Jeetender running a criminal immigration racket and fleeing the country with $3 million.

Immigration department staff cut back so much that they can't really investigate the widespread fraud.

I knew it was bad, come to Melbourne and it's obvious, but its worse that I thought.

We know the government is further relaxing the 457 visa rules, are they going to have anyone police them?

it is obvious why we have high youth unemployment at present with rising overall unemployment.

When you have massive companies like Queensland's Murphy Pipe & Civil rorting the system hiring untrained workers to be store keepers etc. then what hope do we have?

I suggest interested parties should read the Fairfax publications today and yesterday.

I'd like to believe all this factual reporting but it aligns with exactly what the CFMEU have been bringing attention to for years... So it must be bollocks .

And now a Poem from our sponsor;

Our Future
The globe is sadly groaning with debt, poverty and strife
And billions now are pleading to enjoy a better life
Their hope lies with resources buried deep within the earth
And the enterprise and capital which give each project worth
Is our future threatened with massive debts run up by political hacks
Who dig themselves out by unleashing rampant tax
The end result is sending Australian investment, growth and jobs offshore
This type of direction is harmful to our core
Some envious unthinking people have been conned
To think prosperity is created by waving a magic wand
Through such unfortunate ignorance, too much abuse is hurled
Against miners, workers and related industries who strive to build the world
Develop North Australia, embrace multiculturalism and welcome short term foreign workers to our shores
To benefit from the export of our minerals and ores
The world's poor need our resources: do not leave them to their fate
Our nation needs special economic zones and wiser government, before it is too late
