According to the theguardian.com Prime minister Malcolm Turnbull says he is ‘putting Australians first’ by giving them priority for jobs currently open to overseas workers.
The government will replace skilled 457 visas with a new category to give Australians priority for Australian jobs, Malcolm Turnbull said in a shock announcement on Tuesday.
Turnbull used Facebook to announce the policy, which he said would “put jobs first” and “Australians first”, signalling a reduction in the occupations available to skilled foreign workers and raising the threshold to qualify.
“Australians must have priority for Australian jobs – so we’re abolishing the [class] 457 visas, the visas that bring temporary foreign workers into our country,” he said.
