There are 1.8 million people looking for work in Australia; immigration rate is unsustainable

by the ABC and Cairns News

Net migration of 245,400

Australia’s immigration rate has become unsustainable now that 1000 additional people entered the country each day up to June 2017.

Treasurer Scott Morrison is correct when he says there were 371,000 new jobs created over the past year.

Australia’s population swelled by 388,000 in the year until June — which is more than 1,000 people being added to our population every day.

However, it doesn’t necessarily make life any better for the people who live in the country and arguably, makes it a lot worse.

This is more people competing for jobs and housing, pushing down wages and pushing up property prices.

Australia’s population growth is extraordinarily high when compared to our global peers, at 1.6 per cent per year.

This is more than double the rate of the US, nearly three times the rate of the UK, and four times the rate of France.

On current projections, Australia will hit 38 million people by 2050.

This high rate of population growth is driven mostly by high immigration.

Middle Eastern migrants are piling on to the dole queue — with a 33 per cent jobless rate during their first five years in Australia. The Labor, Liberals and Greens are doing what that Fabian sycophant Bob Hawke did in the 80’s – importing potential voters

Net migration was 245,400 people over the past 12 months — which was a 27.1 per cent increase over the year before.

That’s more than the total population of Hobart in new migrants coming to the country in a single year.

Worse still, a large number of the migrants indentify as Muslim, unbalancing the nation’s Christian foundation and way of life.

The simple economic rule of supply and demand means these new workers effectively lower the price of labour, which means lower wages.

A huge intake of new workers makes economic sense if you don’t have enough workers in order to do the jobs you need to get done. But with 700,000 in the unemployment ranks already, we simply don’t need these migrants.

Immigration has been the foundation of Australia’s economic growth, so what would happen if we “close the door”? questions Ian Verrender.

It also makes sense to run a real skilled migration program in order to attract the talent you can’t train yourself.

For example, at the height of the mining investment boom, attracting talent from overseas made sense in many occupations to allow projects to be built.

Although be careful when talking about ‘skill shortages’. Often it isn’t a case of there not being enough people with those skills.

Instead, it’s a case of businesses not being willing to pay enough money to attract people and thus choosing to sponsor foreigners who will work for worse pay and conditions arriving on 457 and holiday visas.

Then to add insult to injury the Liberal Party Government slapped those back packers and overseas workers with a 15 per cent income tax. Previously they worked in the farming industry without paying any tax at all.

Farmers objected strongly saying crops would be left in paddocks to rot, because the majority backpacker workforce would not come to Australia for a working holiday on farms.

Consequently a group representing foreign backpackers has taken the government to court over what it says is an unfair tax.

Raw deal for Australian workers, where are the unions and the ALP?

Australia is not currently anywhere near full employment.

At 5.4 per cent unemployment, Australia is well above the US which is sitting at 4.1 per cent and the UK at 4.2 per cent.

There are currently 707,000 unemployed Australians. These are people actually looking for work.

But that’s only part of the story as there are currently about 1.1 million Australians who are ‘underemployed’.

These are people who are currently working (perhaps as little as one hour a week) but want to work more hours.

So the number of Australians currently looking for more work is 1.8 million.

There is still a huge amount of ‘slack’ in the labour market which is keeping people from getting a decent pay rise.

Companies are much less likely to offer big pay rises to workers if they know there’s a big supply of other workers who are desperate for a job or more hours.

What’s really worrying, is despite the Government crowing about creating ‘1,000 jobs a week’, there are only 20,000 less unemployed Australians than there were a year ago.

The economic ‘growth’ hasn’t made a sizeable difference to the amount of Australians unemployed and has left us with the worst wages growth since the 1960s.

One of the few patriots left who understand the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head this year.

  1. Can’t you see yet? They are stealing your very life! Don’t let yourself become another America. America once became great for a number of good reasons, such as hard work, sympathy and genuine friendliness, but being a crazy raghead killing people or a fake refugee waiting to be handed welfare were NEVER one of them.

  2. A very intense report which reveals where Australia’s problems are….Immigration should be halted and an inquiry to expose the top items: Welfare..Housing …Health..Food…as even I can understand…To go with this generous intake…..will finish us…
    2018 is the year for TRUTH!!.

  3. this is not only about migration the main drive here is invasion using migration and the weapon to spear head the whole NWO agenda and it must be put to a screeching halt before we become one of those third rate country’s where or national identity has disappeared and there is nothing left but the lawlessness and the caliphate of the Islamic invaders.

  4. Plus the hundreds of thousands of pensioners that are looking for either full time or part time work. The true figures of unemployed is some where around 20% of the available ready to workforce and that’s a real big strain on the social services system

  5. Well of course the plan of the New World Order/Globalisation was always to cause chaos and to destroy the Christian West. What better way than to infiltrate all systems of government and bureaucracy to steer everything in that direction. Those on the left appear to have no understanding of what they have done or are doing. The education system is controlled by the U.N.Socialist/Communist agenda, from Kindergarten to University, who have removed all history from the curriculum, except to tell the young how terrible the adults are, especially white Christians., Immigration from the middle East has been part of the plan to destroy our culture, and those doing so are incapable of discerning what it will do to their children and grandchildren. Let them all take some of the illegal immigrants into their own homes to see if they change their minds?

    • Hi Bev you left out the poor, bedraggled blackfellas who occupy the major part of the Australian public curriculum, from kindergarten to University. Kids are brainwashed into believing the murris have been downtrodden for a century and a half by nasty white bastards. The truth is the murris would not exist today if it were not for the valiant efforts of the soldiers, sailors and airmen of Australia and the US, who held the pagan Japs at bay in 1942. The murris occupy their present level in society because that is where they want to be.Ed

  6. Ponzi scheme of population growth, it will blow up in our faces by 2019 mass depression of stocks and house values

    • Sooner Than that mate not to mention the crime and huge social and economic issues that come with it this must be stopped before we reach the point of no return.
