  2. Did anyone see on the news last night, Dick Smith's negative views of Aldi? Claiming that their cheap goods are not the right thing for Australians and they don't operate in an 'Australian' way? Also claiming they remove our choice as customers and put people out of work. He wants them to prove that their profits stay in Australia. This sort of rubbish is the reason why there's no external competition here. Why you have to pay high prices, because that's the best way. But don't Aldi pay money for the land they build on, don't they employ Australians in their shops and warehouses, don't they pay huge sums of tax into the system, don't they provide reasonably priced goods for the average struggling Australian? What's wrong with buying Aldi brand, if it's cheaper than a well known brand, it's our choice. I think a bit of competition and an end to the high price monopolies is what Australia needs.

    Greetings From Mike Smith

    Hi All, This is Mike Smith and I am new to this forum. I am really feeling good to be out here, since I am a regular reader of the forums. Also I would like to say that this community caught my attraction as I am always on the lookout for knowledge and various other life experiences, which I am sure that I would get over here. I would be more than happy to share my viewpoint and experiences on various other topics, as well. So I am really looking forward to a happy and enjoyable experience. Regards Mike Smith
  4. Hi George These explanatory notes would be amusing if they weren't so terrible. Uncertainty about what skills would be on the new SOL? There is none. Everybody knows the main content of the list as it has been draft published, and that it's smaller than the existing one and might yet add or subtract a few occupations. But for the bulk of cases who already know that the new shorter list is unlikely to include their occupation or know they will nnever be off it - hairdressers and cooks off; nurses doctorsand engineers on - what's there to be uncertain about? Likewise, preventing applications from those who may not be in such shortage - everybody again knows that the new SOL is the cut down starting point and the researach system to add new occupations has not been established yet. And with the State lists not being ready yet - again backed by non-existant research systems - then who can accurately say at this point in time exactly which occupations are or are not in demand? Therefore, the people who are on the existing SOL who will in all likelihood get back on to it once their profession becomes more organised at lobbying are in the meantime being shut out deliberately, the only reason for this is DIAC hold more applications than they can process. This is just using any excuse to cut down the inflow of applications, no matter how they dress it up. I wish for once the Minister and his spin doctors would just be direct and honest about things. This misdirection only harms the confidence of the market whereas plain speaking does not hurt it to the same degree.
  5. Hi All DIAC and the MIA (Migration Institute of Australia) are running a serioies of live roadshows in the main capital cities in Oz. The idea of the roadshows is to give DIAC a chance to speak with Registered Migration Agents about the recent and proposed changes to the skilled migration program. George Lombard went to the first of such roadshows and reported on it in the thread below: http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/78424-thread-agents-only-re-new-gsm-changes-4.html I want to keep the above thread clear so that only the Agents and those most closely involved with them put posts on the Agents only thread, please. Jamie Smith of the MIA went to the roadshow in Melbourne today. His thoughts are below: This thread is so that PiO's members can discuss what Jamie has discovered. Jamie is free to join this thread if he wishes, as are any and all of the agents who help out with Poms in Oz. Very many thanks for your description of the meeting, Jamie. Cheers Gill
