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.

“Don’t ‘kid’ yourself Australia – the LNP will still sell Kidman to the Chinese” says Bob Katter

S. Kidman & Co Ltd has pastoral leases covering 101,000 square kilometres in three states and the Northern Territory. Kidman cattle stations produce grass-fed beef for export to Japan, the USA and South East Asia.

20 April 2016: KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katterhas today expressed his disgust at the LNP Government delaying the decision to sell off Kidman and Co to the Chinese until after the likely Federal election on July 2. He has warned Australians that the LNP will sell off our country – the question is ‘will it be before or after an election?’

The Government can ‘kid’ some of the people some of the time. They can ‘kid’ some of the people all of the time. They can ’kid’ all of the people some of the time but they can’t ’kid’ all of the people, all of the time!” Mr Katter said.

It was reported today that Treasurer Scott Morrison has avoided making an election issue of the Kidman & Co cattle empire sale to the Chinese by delaying the decision until after the election. The $371 million sale of Kidman & Co cattle empire in the N.T equates to roughly 1.3 per cent of Australia’s total land mass.

Mr Katter said, “Anyone who would accept this cynical manoeuvre by Scott Morrison is not a patriotic Australian. You absolutely know that the Government is going to flog off a giant pastoral area in the Northern Territory to the Chinese.

Why did foreign powers in the forties try and invade us, when you can just simply buy us? And the LNP and ALP are selling us very cheaply.”

Mr Katter recalls a front page of the Australian Financial Review last November as a canary in the coal mine for Chinese buy of Australian agribusiness:

“On the front page of the Fin Review (9 Nov 2015) there’s Josh Frydenberg with the Chinese port owner handing out $5 billion, ‘Foreign investors tempted with $5b Top End development loans’ was the heading.

Please… fellow Australians wake up and stand up. The LNP and ALP are selling out your country from underneath you. You will have no resources that can earn you any money and you will be under the iron first of Chinese corporations, almost all of who are controlled by the Chinese Government.

Anyone who thinks the Kidman purchase is where it‘ll be stopping, believes in the tooth fairy.”
