The minister will scrap a deal, struck while Opposition Leader Bill Shorten was workplace relations minister, allowing major fast food outlets to import staff. It is the first time an entire sector has been banned from sponsoring overseas workers.
These workers will be forced to leave the country when their agreements terminate unless the fast-food outlet is able to mount an individual case as to why they should stay in the country.
More than 318 fast food outlets across the country have overseas workers behind the counter.
McDonald’s has flown in 285 foreign workers under the Fast Food Industry Labour Agreement, KFC has 88 foreigners on their books and Hungry Jack’s has hired at least 74 people.
“The fast food industry is one of the more common employers of school leavers and young people,” department advice stated.
Mr Dutton said the Coalition government had cut back on the number of 457 visas being issued from a peak of 110,000 in 2013 to about 90,000 now.
The countries where most foreign workers on 457 visas come from are India, the United Kingdom, China, the Philippines and Ireland.
The Daily Telegraph revealed in November that Labor had approved a little-known labour agreement to allow major fast food outlets to fly in overseas workers.
Fast food outlets will still be allowed to make formal requests for a foreign worker in exceptional circumstances.
Our “Peaceful Islamic neighbours to the north”, have suspended all military co-operation with Australia, apparently over “offensive material” that members of their military were exposed to whilst training in Australian SAS base in Perth. This comes just days after the Palestinian representative to Australia, Izzat Abdulhadi called for Islamic nations to sanction Australia and threatened “severe consequences”! see. Cut ABC funding until they support Australia instead of Palestinian terrorists.
The move has been reported by Indonesian media outlet, Kompas as due to:
Indonesian Special Forces instructor took offence to some “laminated material” at the Perth base, Kompas reported. The material was judged to be demeaning to Pancasila, Indonesia’s “ruling philosophy” and the principles on which the state was founded.”All forms of co-operation have been suspended and a broad range of activities would be affected,” Major General Wuryanto said.
To this writer there is a drawing parallel between the insignificance of the “reason” behind cutting military ties and the call for Islamic nations to “sanction Australia” / give us “severe consequences” after former Prime Minister Tony Abbott called for Australia to cease “aid donations” to Palestine that accumulate to over $40 million per year!
The mainstream media will fail to draw attention to this in the same way they failed to draw attention to the fact that our nation was threatened by the Palestinian representative.
To gain any respect from the Australian people, I personally urge Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop to stand their ground and cut our over-zealous foreign aid program with Indonesia to show them that the Australian Military and the Australian people will not be walked over!
According to the Australian governments Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website, in the 2015 – 16 financial year we gifted Indonesia with approximately $379.1 million and in the 2016 – 17 financial year it is projected that we will gift them $365.7 million in “aid”.
Indonesia are a member of the G20 and thus the amount of “aid” they receive from Australia EVERY YEAR, is ridiculous!
The following graphs depict G20 countries.
It’s also quite interesting to note that Indonesia ranks 8th on the list of wealthiest Asian nations.
1. China: US$21.269 trillion (up 8% from 2015)
3. India: $8.721 trillion (up 9%)
4. Japan: $4.932 trillion (up 1.8%)
8. Indonesia: $3.028 trillion (up 6.3%)
13. South Korea: $1.929 trillion (up 4.1%)
20. Thailand: $1.161 trillion (up 4.6%)
21. Taiwan: $1.125 trillion (up 2.3%)
25. Pakistan: $988.2 billion (up 6.1%)
28. Malaysia: $863.8 billion (up 5.7%)
29. Philippines: $801.9 billion (up 7.8%)
33. Bangladesh: $628.4 billion (up 8.3%)
40. Singapore: $486.9 billion (up 3%)
For anyone who is unsure why I question the mainstream media’s love of referring to Indonesia as “our peaceful Islamic neighbours to the north” follow these links:
Indonesian military and police also systematically target any West Papuans campaigning for independence.
2017 has started off with a Australian politicalBANG!
Between Tony Abbott calling for a common sense approach to Palestinian “aid” and Peter Dutton and Pauline Hanson speaking out about fixing the Australian Citizenship tests and Cory Bernardi and Pauline Hanson discussing a possible political joint venture, it looks as though Australian politics is going to get very interesting in 2017!
Heres hoping that Malcolm Turnbull and Julie Bishop are finally able to hear the screams of the Australian people and actually put the will of the people above that of their globalist masters before this is our future!
