    Labor's growing labour crisis

    Labor's growing labour crisis. ......CEOs are now much more optimistic about the economy than they have been since the mining tax was announced and Kevin Rudd was sacked, but they are increasingly being kept awake at night by skills shortages. As Australia’s politicians start going at each other today, the nation’s CEOs are saying that the two most important people in Parliament are the Immigration Minister, Chris Bowen and his predecessor Chris Evans, who is now Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Jobs and Workplace Relations...... The word from the CEOs is that the greatest danger they face is not being able to grow their businesses because they can’t find the managers and skilled staff they need......

    Parent Visas Under Labor

    Hi All For those of you who are Parents hoping to join your children in Oz - or maybe you are the child in Oz - I'm wondering whether the defeat of the Howard Govt will make any difference to the agonising waits via making more visas available in each of the Parent categories. In 1996, when Labor were last in power, some 8,0000 Parents were able to migrate to Australia that year. Howard introduced the idea of a 2-tier system for Parents virtually as soon as he got in. The Oppoisitio kept chucking the Bills out so Howard retaliated by cutting the number of Parent visas available. In 1999, only 55 Parents were given visas. That effectively forced the CP scheme onto the statute books and I'm sure that Labor won't repeal it, but I am wondering whether they might become more generous with the annual quotas. I have no idea what the answer is. I'm curious to hear what others think, though. Cheers Gill
