John Laws has been the most respected and highly rated radio talk back/entertainer for decades , he has heard it all,talked to the most famous/infamous on occassions.
But a few days ago he had a fair dinkum Aussie , who after spending thousands of dollars attempting to get a job in the highly lucrative mining industry in Australia..spending approximately six thousand dollars, getting the certificates that are required by the Aussie(sic, sic) mining bosses0 to be considered as suitable employment material, on his show choking back tears why?

He like millions of other stunned Aussies , have been informed(sic) that The Aussie governemnet i the last budget passed legislation allowing foreign nations who invest in Australia to import theiir own labour, and bypass all immigration and residency requirements.
The upshot?
In Australia mining jobs pay good money , there is a many thousand waiting list for supoosed vacancies.

But alas those on the waiting lists are going to be hopped over by Indian and Malay Chinese ec t workers with no Australian citizenship/residency permits...by virtue of Prime Minister Gillards legislation, that efectively allows foreign non citizens/residents to take Australian citizens/residents jobs in a sector that will earn billions in profit.

Why...yes the Indians and Chinese will work for less, but this is our nation or was.

These invaders are not crossing a border at midnight, they are /will be flying in on Indian/chinese built runways , via Jet palnes, circumnavigating Australian customs.

THINK ABOUT THAT.
Australia has been invavded...sold out by Stalinists.

Weep diggers weep, the traitors used you up and are as fat as you were skeletons in the Japanese camps

Indian billionares , own our political parties.

These kind of laws are what bring down a Flourishing economy.These law makes should be tried for treason! With the rest of the world economy going down the tubes, The Aussie Economy was doing rather good until just lately. With new laws regarding Carbon Taxes and now this. Terrible i say.

Dear Dr Expired,

Do they give any advantage to the aborigines in getting these jobs, I mean it was their country too. I live in California in the United States and everyone here complains about Mexicans, the people who started California and Texas and Arizona. I hear people complain that the illegals are taking their jobs. In central California where the illegal work picking fruit and vegtables, people complain that there kids go to school, yet, once they find the children they don't track down the families and send them all back, they just want to deny them any services. The immigration and naturalization service knows who picks our crops and doesn't raid the farms because we want the cheap labor.

I guess what I am saying is, we get the government that we deserve and the one we sell out to and eventually, it sells us out. Sorry for what is happening in your country, I don't know how they elected her in the first place. Yours is one of the few western countries to avoid the economic crash; but, I am sure she will find away to get you there. Peace.

I dont buy it

Indians are especially the Aussies' scapegoats.. cause they remind them of the Aborigines they practically killed off (and did completely in Tasmania/NZ)

Asian indians and made to "pay" for it (ie 'taking their jobs') by white aussies with their LIVES in various hate killings/rapes on Indian guys/gals over the past few years in Oz, its sickening

China is not only exporting their cheap merchandise all over the world, they are exporting cheap labor all over the world.

It's sad that your countries natural resources are being strip away and by people that have no reason to care how they do it. Probably create more pollution, use more dangerous techniques, leave the job in a worse state. Then the government will charge the citizens for the clean up. Good grief.

This very same scenario is being played out in Africa.

A quiet invasion so to speak.

Haha but seriously on to the real point of your thread:
We are going to see this happening more and more often, western workers are simply to expensive to keep and corporations are all about bottom line.
That’s what we get for allowing these corrupt corporations to rape our land for gigantic profit and only throw us crumbs in return.
The problem for most is not having a degree, people with degrees won’t have as much problem getting a job; but there are simply too many people with hardly any qualifications wanting a job in mining.
The more people who want it the harder it is to get.

We the people are the only ones who can stop this and it seems we have no intention.

Seriously how many Indians have experience in modern mining?
Just like the Telsra Jobs, just likethe Qantas jobs ect ect, the bosses don't give a fig, they earn intheir corrupt pocke ts a few grand a day by employing Indians and chinese imported labour, each of the HR guys will say keep it on coming boys.
They are treasonous scum, but hey the dinner parties and retirement bonuses will see them getting A1 medical care and perhaps knighthoods whilst their collateral damage live in campervans on the side of the roads whilst Indian and Chinese new rich roll on by in their "guided"luxury cars, ontheir way to their "guided" penthouse apartments.
We are the dead.

Oh man, this is the really messed up part

We did'nt elect Jullia Gillard, she overthrew our elected Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.
He was shafted deeper than an alien probe, and we Aussies just said
"She'll be right mate" There were no protests or anything
All that happened was a re-election that resulted in a hung parliment wich isn't as
good as it sounds

Jullia if your reading this, your a slag and your man friend is a hairdresser

I have no idea, but probably a lot because of how large their population is.
Of course the bosses dont care, they arent paid to worry about the workers you know.
This is why a nation shouldnt depend on corporations so much, because it goes money first, people last.

Ha ha...me too...seeing the words john laws and respected, together is a sick joke...
The same tripe was peddled out about the Greeks, who practically built the roads and hydroelectric systems themselves...was that an 'invasion'?...then there was the dreaded vietnamese, now heavily involved in 'stealing' farming jobs - being both cheap and industrious...they are the major stallholders at produce markets...

Each generation or so has seen the same scenario played out, with the same tripe peddled out about...INVASIONS of immigrants taking my job...truth be told, most Aussies prefer a more layed back system of work, so they don't relocate to mining areas, leaving thier family behind to work long hours to provide for them. This says alot about the kind of mentality that the basic Aussie has (this is a generalisation!)...'stuff that for a joke!'...john laws -career loud mouth and opinion peddler (his own) is playing this card continuously (a pity he couldn't have devoted more time to his singing career -woulda killed two birds with the one stone!)

I wouldn't at all be surprised if the 'weeping man' was a carefully acted out scene!

Get over it...

At the end of the day china probably own the mines or the land they are on of course they will choose their own before us AUsies.I am trying to get on at the mines right now but it is so hard to get your foot in the door,this is probably why!

Well, OP a lot of countries are feeling your pain. My home country of the US as well.

I just wonder how long it will be before the masses of the world look at many of the nations one sided trade policies, look at the fact that their politicians sold them out, are continuing to sell them out, and finally utter the truth in mass. And the truth is, it's not ignorance and stupidity on the parts of the leaders, most of them were smart enough to get through the universities, intelligent enough to fool the various people, and cunning enough to get into office and keep their offices. No, the sad truth is treason. The truth is treason. They are not accidentally and blindly screwing up their nations economies and contributing to the instability of the global economy. They are systematically and willfully crippling their nations economies and doing all in their power to bring their nations down.

The US is a perfect example, both parties since Bush Sr., have been passing and adding on to various one sided trade agreements with foreign nations; NAFTA and the GTA. And in fact even in this current administration, with our economy sputtering and and dying with much of it's lifeblood; money, flowing out to foreign nations, only returning when those same nation's buy more of our bonds and debt,and unemployment creeps higher and higher, what do they do? They sign the agreement to add trucking to the NAFTA agreement; ensuring that soon in the coming years our trucking industry will collapse our drivers replaced with non US citizens and all the US truckers will add to the rolls of the unemployment line.

Death of another industry, another hammer blow to the head of the great eagle our nation was. A powerful nation, whose production base was so strong that at the height of world war 2 the axis nations and most nations of the world could not even hope to out match it's productive might. And not to downplay the strategists and soldiers who valiantly waged war in the trenches and the battlefields, but it was really our production base that won that war; we made more tanks, more planes, more bombs, bullets and guns, then all of them combined. Today,......there is no production base and what industries, are left are being systematically destroyed before our eyes, both parties dragging the legislative dagger across their throats and laughing in glee as they line their pockets with more gold, more wealth, more power. And really why should they care, they and their families will not suffer and if things get to bad they have bunkers to run to.

I understand why many of the people of the world don't want to utter the truth; why many want to hide in their entertainment, their electronics and their sports, why many want to desperately grab onto their flags and rally around their various political parties; believing in the liars and praying it can't be true. They don't want to utter the most horrible of words against the various leaders of their nations; TREASON, because then it means they have to do something or condone it; they have to fight it or accept it, and most are terrified they will lose what little they have. Of course they will lose what they have anyway. The truth is the leaders of the nations are doing nothing to fix or avert the looming global catastrophe, they instead doing everything in their power to bring it down.

And, lets be honest, it's not communists, socialists, fascists, or any other ists; it's corruption; corrupt leaders that will sell their people and nations down the river and smile and lie right to their peoples faces, while stuffing their pockets with ill gotten gain and continuously pressing at the pulse of power.

At what point do the people of the world at least admit to themselves the truth, none of the leaders of the world are your leaders; they in fact are traitors to your nations.

I don't know where you get your facts from about NZ ? But you had better change your source.
The Maori were not killed off here in NZ , far from it.

Nah, not enough, nowhere near enough, according to our government.. (Such idiots).. Didn't you hear? That Gillard (I think) wants the population to be at 50 million people by 2030 or so? Fifty damn million people.. The roads in Sydney are as jammed as they are. I know a lot of those 25 Million will come to New South Wales.. Let's say, about 6 million more of them? Then they'll spread out elsewhere across the country.

I say, keep the population under 27 million for a very long time.

I seriously, can not imagine what Australia will be like in 2030, I don't even want to imagine.. Most of Australia's most important jobs that help this country advance will be outsourced to overseas countries for very cheap labour. I wish we had a Prime Minister that told the Corporations to piss off, and take interest in the Australian people.

It saddens me seeing such a beautiful country, with magnificent people being laid off their jobs so the CEO's can make extra profit, and then outsource the jobs overseas.

Worse thing about all of this.. If you talk about it, and go against overseas countries taking our jobs.. You'll be called a narrow-minded racist.

Let me guess another person who believes tassie is not a state in Australia because it's Not connected to the mainland, so I guess it becomes a part of NZ by default eh?

I've worked in mines. The problem with people wanting to work in the mines, you actually have to be in a mining Town, Kalgoorlie for example, I enquired about jobs there, they told me I had to be there before I'd even get Looked at! So I paid $900 for a plane ticket and flew there, went to a job agency on the Friday and did the Miners health an safety induction, and when confronted with the job type I wanted? I ticked ANY.

They called me at 9 pm that night to start at 4 am the next morning working at a lab milling and processing core samples. Entry level job being paid over 30 an hour.

You can't sit in Sydney wanting a mining job in w.a or FNQ. Get
On a damn plane or drive there, it shows initiative and willingness to work.

They're doing this in ever major Western economy. Australia is not alone. The political changes we've seen since the 1970's were first designed to remove the ability of the people to rise up, through the power of demonstrations, the power of unions, and strikes, and to destroy the last vestiges of the altruism and socialist policies we saw since the end of WWII that affected most of the Western world, with the exception of the US who have been programmed to hate anything liberal let alone socialist.

The 1980's saw people given money and riches, which most of us squandered in orgies of spending and excess. Look at the TV shows of the time, see how appallingly gratuitous they were about consumerism, and riches for all.

The 1990s brought recession, and an element of fear into the job market. People had gotten used to the lifestyle of greed and instant gratification. But people hadn't quite been programmed enough so we had another decade of rampant consumerism from the mid 90s to the global economic crisis. By this time a lot of people had over extended themselves and were mired in debt, or were treading a fine line between being ok, and falling into debt, so we had the financial crisis. People were terrified, scared of losing their jobs to outsourcing, being downsized, being encouraged to seek opportunities elsewhere, and the like.

The trouble is the jobs they used to occupy had gone to India/China/Eastern Europe where people would do the same work for a fraction of the cost. To keep working you have to either take a massive pay cut, or change career, or end up working on minimum wage just to feed yourselves. Industry in many countries was destroyed in the 1970s, so there aren't opportunities to go into those markets of employment. Most employment now is either state,financial, retail, banking, or service related, but in a financial crisis all of these industries cut back to the core. This puts more people out of work, more people chasing fewer jobs, for less wages.

Now you also see something new, people so far in debt that the banks foreclose on them, throw them out on the street, and people fall into a despair cycle and literally give up, a rising trend is suicides of people who've fallen from a decent lifestyle to which they could have reasonably being expected to have, to losing their home, their possessions, their sense of value and well-being. Everything is taken away from them, and they lose all hope and take their own lives in a state of utter helplessness.

We're now in a position of having each economy in a dire position, the workforce and populace is so worried about keeping their job, finding a job, and keeping a roof over their heads they will consider virtually any kind of employment, they dare not make a fuss in case it rebounds on them, and the employers can do whatever they want. Employment rights aer taken out, ripped up, and we're back to Victorian style employment. The media are compliant in all this, and all you see on telly are endless shows about young vibrant people who have more money than sense, and live these outrageous lifestyles. In the UK there are entire channels devoted to this sort of thing. So the young people growing up see this and think why bother with education or political activism when all you need is a good body, a bad attitude, and everything will be handed to you on a plate. Oddly enough they then get very depressed when they reach 18, are uneducated, have no prospects, and feel alienated from life.

Now the people running the show make their class move, they flood the country with people from poor economies and skew the job market and employment law to ensure these people take up a significant element of the jobs that are available. This creates a number of situations. Firstly it creates racial tension, which is good for controlling the masses, if anyone complains they are labelled a racist and decried from the highest point of moral rectitude. Secondly, it creates even more fear in the employment markets. Thirdly, it brings a whole new level of crime into each country. Sadly when people move en masse they bring the bad as well as the good. This stirs the pot even more.

You now have in each country a set of people at the top who live in obscene wealth. Under which you have a class of politicians (although they all believe in the same thing, greed and self service), who want to be obscenely rich and are rewarded for keeping the people down. Then you have a layer of people who's lifestyles are very good and they control down to a lower level or the majority of us, who are politically apathetic, scared of losing our jobs, owned by the banks and other financial institutions, and terrified of what the future might hold. Under this you have the people who've fallen from the that layer and are in free fall, unemployed, depressed, scare and frightened.

Sadly this is just scratching the surface, but I'm too depressed to write more!
