Native Australian nurses face discrimination, unemployment

In recent decades, objection to the high immigration has been smeared by the "politically correct" and phony left political groups as "racist" and loudly denounced. This has helped make it possible for governments to impose record high rates of immigration. As a result, native Australian workers have suffered higher living costs, particularly for housing, and reduced wages as a result of more competition for work.

Their circumstances have since been made even worse by having been discriminated against in favour of ever larger numbers of immigrant workers. The included article by one currently unemployed nurse's assistant (AIN) was first posted here as a comment.

Australian citizenship is a privilege, highly valued and sought after globally. It is not a right. Citizenship comes with prerequisite conditions and performance conditions.

Move over Mr Legrain, the floodgates are open

Philippe Legrain's puerile veneration of globalization and free market economics is, for its outrageous simplicity, alluring to some in the same way that Ayn Rand's uncompromising fantasies drew a cult following.

Do claims of higher immigrant wages answer objections to record Australian immigration levels?

Rupert Murdoch's Australian newspaper in an article "Migrant workers scoring top pay" has made use of figures which which purportedly show that immigrants earn more, rather than less than their Australian equivalents, as if to answer any possible objection to Australia's current record high rate of immigration. ...
