I gotta say, old uncle albo is looking way way too much liberal lite atm

...protecting the gas cartels, ...ignoring his cost of living promises, that are now jusr plain bullshit, ...and seemingly, being beholden by fossil fuel companies generally...

and now...

'...the worlds turned on its head since those tax cuts..'

'...we should react accordingly...'

'...huge deficit...'

'...people like me dont need these tax cuts...'

'...we are sending the wrong message with these tax cuts...'

all from a liberal mp no less!

all the talk around the jobs and skills summit - from both sides - is permanent migration!

geez, with the current trajectory... do you really think 200k plus permanent migrants a year are going to look like a good decision in 3 or 4 years time?

Just wait and see what happens with stage 3 tax cuts. Politically if he was to out right cancel them now he would be jumped on by the LNP, MSM and the idiots on Sky as a liar, breaking promises, cannot be trusted etc. This would continue until the next election and take over news cycle. They are not due until 2024, so maybe smarter politically to let it stew a bit until more and more people on all sides of politics come out such as Broadbent from the LNP saying they are a stupid idea etc. If the momentum continues then down the track in late 2023, early 2024 it may turn out to be politically and economically advantages then to cut or modify the stage 3 tax cuts.... Let's wait and see.
Hoping Labor planning marathon, not a sprint, for they cannot really be too radical ( think MRRT tax and what happened there) if they want to stay in power, but they are already proving to be a major improvement in all areas than previous corrupt Muppets .

Saying that, those tax cuts do need cancelling or modification as they will turbo charge inequality in Australia. Although I would personally benefit, I am totally against them and it would influence how I vote next election if they were not changed.

I think you missed the word "skilled" before migrants sypkan. Big difference!!! And it's not a 12 month think fest. It'll take at least 12 months before any applications are even processed so the 3 to 4 year plans looks pretty solid to me. How about we wait 3 to 4 years before being so negative. It's better than the last 10 years we have waited with sweet f'all being done.

Genuine question: Are you the only person left in Australia who is still falling for the crazy lie that Australia’s skilled migration program is actually bringing in skilled migrants?

You are aware that the average wage for a skilled migrant is tens of thousands of dollars lower than the average Australian wage aren’t you?

You honestly believe we are importing hundreds of thousands …..millions…..of skilled workers and not food delivery service drivers / kitchen hands / massage lounge workers ?

That would be a hard lol if it wasn’t a bit scary.

Genuine Answer: I am a skilled migrant. Been here since 1991 and have been an Australian citizen for 27 years. Got a job 2 months after arriving and have been employed ever since. My wage has been equal if not better than any other Australian and I have contributed 32 years worth of PAYG and disposable income to the economy. So if Labor gets the mix correct like they plan to i.e. in critical industries such as health, trades, manufacturing and tech then all the best to them. Australia will be a better place for it. I think it's worth sucking it up and giving it a go. As I said it can't be worse than the last 10 years.

Now as to your usual fall back comment about Uber drivers, reduced wages etc, etc all I'll say is you are just parroting the same old homophobic bullshit we get shoved down our throats by the right wing media in this country, which basically capitalises on the fear of ignorant dumb fucks like yourself.
Maybe it needs to be pointed out to you that yes an Indian doctor who migrates to Australia that can't get work in his profession becomes an Uber driver hence the pay disparity. But to say we are importing unskilled massage parlour workers, Uber drivers, etc on masse under some type of crazy lie is just a crazy lie in itself.

Like I said bloke - there is a big difference between skilled and unskilled migrants and their respective contributions towards Australian society.

I’m a right-wing homophobe because I accurately called bullshit on the skilled immigration rort? And that rort can’t possibly exist because you arrived as a genuine skilled immigrant before the rort began?

Rightio bloke

Labor does not want “the correct mix”. Labor wants to firehose warm bodies into our population irrespective of their talents or abilities.

Here’s Australia’s leading immigration demographer to set you straight. This is from 2018 but is not just factually correct, but probably understated about the current situation which is acutely worse than it was even then.

A lot of businesses need to die. A community doesn’t need to bulldoze remnant bush land and overwhelm local infrastructure to house the imported employees of the superfluous half dozen cafes, hairdressers and restaurants lining their streets.

Recognising the still viable contributions of older Aussies without endangering their pensions will go a long way. I do think that fair pay, conditions and the wholesale demonisation of the gig employment model will sort the rest. Skilling Australians is existential, not just a temporary stop gap.

Immigration doesn’t have to fall to zero and nor should it. The current negotiation tactic of business and lobbyists presenting a 160K floor on immigration numbers needs to be binned with extreme prejudice.

Trashing Australia to fit the Neoliberal globalisation model isn’t fait accompli. It’s not the solution to our current situation, it’s the cause.

the thing is garyg1412, as you said, none of this will even kick in for another 12 months or so...

so... if current policies to kerb inflation work... australia will be a very different place in 12 - 18 months, where even MORE over the top migration, on top of DECADES of it, will flow at a time when its not going to be very desired / required / palatable...

if current inflation policies don't work...

well, australia will be bordering on unliveable for many... still with a tightening labour market... and an ever increasing / outrageous cost of housing...

not really a recipe for a vibrant migrant harmony...

especially when many people are already under such pressures - in these supposed boom times...

most people accept we desperately need some skilled migration, however the now over the top emphasis on permanent migration is reckless and terribly lacking of forsight

not to mention contrary to other policies

labor are over reacting to morrisons temporary migrant pandemic response, and tickling their ideological fetishes in the process...

as the liberal dude said re. tax cuts, we're in a fast moving fluid scenario where the world has been turned on its head, governments need to be more responsive and flexible

locking in 18 month down the track ideological fetishes is just plain dumb

we see it with the democrats in US, all their policies were penned 3 - 6 years ago, and are just pouring more fuel on an already out of control inflationary fire. labor is behaving very similar on a few policy fronts

instead of being quick to act and responsive in a modern all over the shop world, they're still reacting (reactionaries) to the masiive pre pandemic polical shift bomb that went off before it

ir's not wholey a left / right thing, its more about governments are entreched-ingly slow to change, in an fast paced changing world that is currently in a seriously out of control flux stage that's off the charts, due to technology combined with a landslide of recent major events

however, left governments seem particularly slow and reluctant to change, as they just appear plain stubborn once they get their hands on the redistribution levers... and their policies and ideas seem terribly dated / clueless / out of touch, before they even break into the office

The other thing to remember about these alleged skills shortage problem is that they’re predicated on modelling built around the mass immigration scenario required to solve ….the problem caused by the solution.

It’s the classic circular logic of the Ponzi ie We need more trucks to build the roads needed to carry more trucks.

In this instance it’s a case of “ We need more immigrants to build the infrastructure, housing and health welfare of a population growing due to more immigration.”

It’s a lie. A well presented and oft repeated lie perpetuated by institutions we used to be able to trust. It’s all still a fucken great big lie.

The endless growth model is a sham which destroys pretty much everything of value for regular Australians and it’s presented as an inviolable and unavoidable reality. It’s not, it’s just a way to enrich and empower psychopathic greedy cnts at the expense of everyone else.

That may very well be so but with Russia and China, we’re evidently squarely in the middle of the most strategically challenging international security environment since the Cold War.

Actually with the rise of China, there seems to be a lot of parallels between now and the lead up to world war 1 (compare with the rise of Germany)?

I also can’t help but contrast between the Gorbachev-Xiaoping era when there was hope that the totalitarian-communist world to transition away from that (albeit painfully, as expected), and now the Putin-Xi era of increasing totalitarian rule, reversing much of what Gorbachev and Xiaoping started, and the increasing assertive military ambition…

It seems that we in Australia now need to go all out economic and population growth, R&D and technological advance, political power and influence, and military buildup and spending as a % of gdp, etc, just to avoid becoming a hole in the ground?

And it seems that we don’t necessarily need to do this just to “play our part” in the free world but instead for our own ability to defend ourselves?

If you moved to India for economic reasons and two years later India went to war would you fight or return to Australia?

If you moved from China to Australia for economic reasons and two years later China attacked Australia would you pick up a rifle and start shooting Chinese soldiers?

That’s before we even talk about whether they Chinese here would consider turning a gun on Australians.

I know, I know….that’s far fetched. There’s no chance that a percentage of the million plus Chinese immigrants in Australia would prefer to fight for China. That thinking is obviously racist!

It’s way too Xtreme racist to suggest that China would have the initiative, inclination or foresight to seed Australia with a fifth column of fighting aged males and spies hidden amongst the Chinese Australian community. They would never stoop to such unfair tactics just to win a war.

Actually it’s not far fetched at all.

It’s actually the main way ancient Chinese civilisation - the Han Chinese culture - spread from the Yellow and Yangtze River civilisations starting a few thousand yes ago to the greater China region as we know it in recent times.

They would transplant and settle large Han populations across greater China and assimilate the existing peoples into Han Chinese culture, often by force from within. The Chinese have been doing it for a few thousand years.

funny you mention Gorbachev. on the way home listening to RN they quoted Mikhail Gorbachev:

“I believe in the cosmos. All of us are linked to the cosmos. So nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals. Being at one with nature.”

what's the point of importing mass bodies as (economic) soldiers to defend a country that has destroyed its host so much so that it no longer has the capacity to support its inhabitants for the future.

100% it's LNP fault we have the lowest unemployment rate in close to 50 years and guess what comes with this?

Yep a shortage of workers both skilled and unskilled.

But don't worry there will be good supply of skilled and unskilled workers looking for jobs in a few years under Labor when unemployment rates are high again.

18 million for the first 5 years then 4 million a year after that . Be nice to see how morriscum came up with these costing figures. Can just imagine the candidates that the GG and Scumo wanted to groom as future leaders. They certainly wouldn’t have been from public schools .

Crew probably wanna race things along...
Tip : Queen's mourning period lasts 10 days & not a second less!

Until then...enjoy yer Right Royal Lockdown!
