    News just in....
  3. Looking at the mining regions of Queensland it's clear that more and more Brits (and now Poles) are being invited in on 457 visas to do jobs on rock bottom wages. There seem to be a body of Brits around on $45-50k believing that is enough to support a family and finding they have to take the cheapest (grotty) accommodation and face an uphill financial struggle. I guess it's a result of the poor economic situation in the UK and a long held British belief that Australia is a dream destination. Once here the underpaid Brit can struggle to get out if the situation as his visa is dependent on the company. Wages for locals seem to be considerably higher as they won't live in mining towns (very expensive) or FIFO for minimum wage. They also have a far better grasp of the cost of living and the exorbitant price of big compulsory items like cars etc Anyone have any comments? Is it a case of buyer beware and the immigrant should do their research first?

    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......

    Swing in favour of Labour

    This may be heading for an outcome by next week, as the three remaining candidates wanted to think it over at the weekend. looks like Labour might still retain power. Gillard edging Australian election race Thursday 02 September 2010 Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has edged closer to retaining power when a prominent independent MP said he would support her Labour Party to form a minority government. A bloc of three independent kingmakers will now decide whether Labour will govern for a second three-year term or whether a conservative Liberal Party-led coalition will form the next administration after August 21 elections failed to give any party a majority. The conservative coalition now needs the backing of all three remaining uncommitted independents to reach a majority in the House of Representatives, while Labour needs only two. Independent Andrew Wilkie announced his decision to back Labour after meetings with Ms Gillard and Liberal leader Tony Abbott. "I have judged that it is in fact the ALP that best meets my criteria that the next government must be stable, must be competent and must be ethical," Mr Wilkie said. Mr Wilkie became an MP after quitting his job as a defence intelligence analyst in 2003 to protest against the then-conservative government's "grossly unethical" explanation for sending 2,000 Australian troops to back US and British forces in the Iraq invasion. He said that he expected that his fellow independents - Bob Katter, Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor - were now more likely to support Labour after new figures showed the Liberal coalition had overstated savings from their election promises by up to 10.6 billion Australian dollars. Ms Gillard said that the independent trio had "done the nation a great service" by demanding to see the official costs of both parties' election promises before deciding whom they would support. Australia will return to the polls if neither leader can secure the support of 76 MPs. This now makes it 74 -73 in favour of Labour. 76 seats are needed to form a minority government. Thoughts Anyone? John
  11. Liam Byrne: No new tax rises under Labour - Telegraph Yesterday, in a surprise intervention ahead of the Budget, Liam Byrne, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, ruled out further increases, including VAT, should Labour win the election. Will the people fall for it? I think they will!:unsure:

  18. The Age WHO are we? As THE SUM OF US shows, we are a surprising group. We once thought of ourselves in timeworn platitudes: the sunburnt country, the lucky country, the land of the fair go. But we knowmany of these old cliches no longer hold true. For a sporting nation, we are rather overweight. For a rich nation, many of us are heavily in debt. We once spoke of a classless society, but wealth distribution is severely lopsided. We know we no longer ride the sheep's back, and, when it comes to "young and free", we are getting less young every year. Fewer of us live anywhere near sweeping plains, and, as working hours and commuting times increase, fewer of us fit the image of a laid-back Aussie. We kno wthere are slightly more than 21 million of us. The census counted 4,591,520 dependent children in Australia, and 2,489,158 families with dependent children. One of us dies every three minutes and 57 seconds. An Australian is born every minute and 55 seconds. Our median age is 36.6 years, and there are 120,800 more females than males. We live in the sixth-biggest country, but rank about 50 for population. And we are bunched up, for the most part, on our vast continent's south-eastern corner. Almost one in three of us live in NSW, almost one in four in Victoria. We are diverse. There were 260 ancestries listed among those who filled out census forms in 2006 - including Tokelauan,Uygur and Zulu. The most common non- Australian ancestries identified were English, Scottish and Irish - much the same as it has been since white settlement. More than 14 million of us were born in Australia, 147,106 in India, 13,881 in Romania, almost 1300 in Morocco and 146 in the Netherlands Antilles. Slightly more than half a million Australians are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island descent. Indigenous Australians have a median age of 21 years - much lower than the general population. On average, if we work full time,we work about 41.7 hours a week, and we earn about $58,400 a year. The average household net worth is about $563,000, based on the Australian Bureau of Statistics' last major study of wealth distribution in 2006. But if your household does not seem so rich, you are not alone.
