Australia invites temporary migrant workers to fill labor shortage
Australia is striving to increase natural resources industry by welcoming remote workers to fill the labor shortage to some extent. The worker shortage has been monitored by Australian province due to high range of business costs and wages.
Australian Immigration Minister, Chris Bowen has given few statements about this filling. He acknowledged that one of Enterprise Migration Agreements is enforced that can now invite foreign workers in mining zone. The permission was given to iron ore mine in north-western Australia which is owned by the Australian richest person, Gina Rinehart. The sector is now in a requirement of 1700 remote workers for a project with a bond of three years period.
This is probably good news for workers who are looking for job in Australia especially in the zone of natural resources. This proclamation had created fear in Australian workers about jobs for them. By considering this, Mr Bowen messaged that the government will give first priority for local workers but present Australian economic situation requires temporary workers in order to make it robust.
According to Bowen statements, earnings for foreign labor will be as per the Australian conditions. The regime believes that these temporary agreements will aid in minimizing tight skilled workers risk at construction stage.
At the time of international financial crisis, there was a huge demand for Australian natural resources especially in China, biggest consumer of natural resources. To meet the demand, the nation had no skilled workers due to less population. As per predictions, in order to reach the demand, the country will require additional 89,000 workers by 2016 at least crest of 49,000 by 2014.
Many people acknowledged that this change will increase interest of foreign workers towards employment in Australia. Mining workers earning per year will be very high in Australia. Due to these well-paid salaries, Australian workers are unwilling to move to remote countries.
