australian immigration visa

Australia's immigration departments annual report has blown off a debate about the huge number of visas being granted to young international people who want to work in Australia.
There is an ongoing debate about the 457 visa and if it is being exploited and how many persons should be allowed to work and for how long they can remain in Australia. 
The annual report showed that he 457 visa was mostly used by Australian workers to employed highly skilled It workers as they are in huge demand in Australia. Software developer is the highest nominated and the most skilled occupation in Australia. According to the report the number of visas that were granted to IT business analysts in they year uptil August 31 was increasing rapidly. During the same period there was also a increase in visas for software engineers by 38.6 per cent.
Peoplebank is an recruitment firm which has a labour agreement and permission to supply IT workers to Australia from overseas said there was a huge demand for IT persons who had experience in project management and also had management skills. Those opposing are saying that the young people who are coming into Australia from other countries are talking away jobs from the Australian born.
The national secretary of Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy union (CFMEU) said its not fair to give 457 visas for the construction sector. In the building and construction sector in Sydney and Melbourne alone 13,000 foreign workers are employed.
He also said that he is not blaming the people who are coming to Australia and working but the government must see to it that the native pope have jobs and a decent standard of living. Dr Bob Birrell, the migration analyst from monash university said people from job hungry countries like asia and europe are flooding into australia. These people access the labour market of Australia and young native people have to get into low skilled jobs.
Many top business men have disagreed to this statement. Rupert Murdoch the global media magnate says that Australia should open its doors to immigrants and that will make Australia more competitive globally. Australia would boost with the diversity that immigration would create and it will also help Australia build good relations with other countries.
He said in a speech at the Lowy Institute think tank that Australia will soon be becoming the worlds most diverse nation. This is a very huge advantage politically and Australia is being racked by a debate on immigration policy and is self-defeating itself. Though he supported immigration he also said that peep coming into the country must obey the rules here, respect the Australian values and the way of life. Among some parts in Australia there are a few strands who value every culture except their own.
