TONY Abbott's Coalition will cut net migration levels if it wins government, in a bid to stop Australia's population reaching its predicted size of almost 36 million in 2050.

Former NSW premier Bob Carr, who has been outspoken on the issue of population, said the government must cut skilled migration. "The argument is about the level of immigration, the rate of immigration . . . we've ramped it up to levels the Australian people aren't comfortable with," Mr Carr said.

Quote:
The Australian Government has decided to temporarily suspend the acceptance of certain General Skilled Migration (GSM) visa applications.

The temporary suspension applies only to primary (main) applicants for the following visa subclasses:

* Subclass 175 – Skilled Independent (Migrant) visa
* Subclass 176 – Skilled Sponsored (Migrant) visa
* Subclass 475 – Skilled Regional Sponsored (Provisional) visa.


http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/general- ... -spnsn.pdf
Quote:
Applications for affected visa subclasses submitted on or after 8 May 2010 will be considered invalid and the application will be returned to the client together with the Visa Application Charge


Quote:
The number of pending GSM applications continues to grow as the demand for GSM places exceeds the available supply. The temporary suspension is being implemented to ensure that the occupational profile of applicants for GSM clearly reflects the needs of the Australian labour market.

Some of those threads are great fun. The "does anyone hate the Italians" one reads like it was written by a bunch of 16 year olds who had never spent more than a weekend away from home.

Things have gone a little flat at the moment . However if you want a job you will get one . Its a nightmare employing young Australians as they have a massive sense of entitlement and just walk out at the drop of a hat to sit on the dole before getting another job which they will walk out on to repeat the process over again . Lazy Australians is one of the reasons why emigrants can do so well here .

Purely anecdotal and probably only relevant to a few but there certainly seems to be a lack of availability of competent small building firms to do extensions, renovations etc. here in Sweden and the situation seems to have persisted for quite a few years now with good builders having long waiting lists.

Even individual tradesmen can be hard to find. When we moved into our rental at the beginning of May the leaky kitchen tap needed replacing and the Landlord rang the plumber while I was with him and got a lead time of 6 weeks to do the job! I got the tap off him and fitted it myself. Some windows also needed to be repaired and the carpenter only turned up to do them in the last week of July.

I've no idea if things will continue like this long term and there is no pot of gold as a self employed tradesman will be paying about 50% (and up) in tax and social insurance but it might suit some people.
