The Assistant Immigration Minister of Australia, Michaelia Cash, stated that the foreign skilled workers will be paid a wage that is equal to that of Australian staff as of the new migration agreements.  

According to the new agreements that are offered to the local regions facing skill shortages, skilled migrant workers will have to get a wage that is equivalent to that of Australians, stressed Michaelia Cash. 

He specified that in all the programs including DAMA referred as Designated Area Migration Agreement, overseas skilled workers will get wages equal to that of Australians. The salary threshold for the 457 visa or Australia Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT), which accounts for $ 53,900 will be applicable to migration agreements of all local areas. Aussie employers need to pay either the market salary rate or TSMT for foreign workers. 

Moreover, he noted that no other foreign worker will be employed on wages less than that of Australian workers receives.
