Australia Working Holiday Visa in Debates

Australia Working Holiday Visa
Recently in Australian news, there's been much talk over the Working Holiday Visa and whether it is wise to decrease the entry intake for this visa, is it helping Australia, or is it harming?

Speaking to people all over the world who have taken the 12 months opportunity of work given with this visa, say it is the best decision they have ever made. Speaking with the youth of Australia they say it means there is no jobs for them due to temporary migrant workers, so who is right?
The Australian Council Of Trade Unions (ACTU) is greatly encouraging a wide spread rethink of the Working Holiday Visa into the country, and plans to dramatically lower the amount of people entering Australia on this visa, blaming the visa on the unemployment rate of Australias working age youth.
Concentrating on the unemployment rate of Australia's young people,  aged between 17 and 25 specifically, in Spain as comparison. Spains level of unemployment for this age group is a staggering 50% and the ACTU is worried that Australia's statistics are now showing 25% and set to rise.
It was argued in a debate, broadcast yesterday - 27th November 2013 - that by making changes to the Working Holiday Visa, nobody at all would benefit. The reason people choose Australia as a migration destination for a 12 month period of work is because the work is so plentiful. They are not coming here to take other peoples jobs, the jobs are there for the taking. Australia's youth are simply not willing to take on certain occupations, such as fruit picking, waitressing and cleaning so if people were not coming over to Australia and filling these positions there would be a huge crisis in the economy. 
Temporary workers, under the Working Holiday Visa, benefit our country and economy as much as being here benefits them. It's a win win situation with nobody suffering in any way.
People who enter the country on this kind of visa, can do so with very basic requirements. It is not a difficult visa to be able to get and the experiences and life skills you can learn and gain on this visa are second to none. Europeans youth have always chosen Australia for gap years and backpacking tours and are taking advantage of this visa to be able to financially support themselves whilst doing so. For example, spending a summer picking bananas in the open sun with a group of friends has to beat a summer job in a packing factory back home!
The sights you see, the people you meet and the knowledge you gain is priceless.
