More Overseas Workers Employed by Small Australian Firms

September 2013, 26
EMAIL  Print A+

A report published by the Edith Cowan University has discovered that a lack of jobs for talented individuals in Australia has led to smaller firms needing to employ immigrants on 457 Australian visas to do the work required at lower pay. The companies involved say that they cannot afford to pay the wages demanded by locals. 

Australian Firms
The study was carried out by researchers from ECU's Centre for Innovative Practice and spoke to 10 managers and 20 workers employed under the 457 visa. It was found that despite the costs involved with employing someone under the visa scheme, it was still preferable to employing a local person. 
In fact the ability to employ a skilled migrant made the companies involved more competitive. Some managers expressed dismay at the locals who insisted on high and unrealistic wages, despite their lack of skills and experience.
Changes to the 457 visa are expected in the coming months and experts are suggesting that it was important to ensure that there are no further costs added to the process. This would hamper expansion plans of smaller firms.
