Under pressure from various sectors ranging from
No industry is as voluble as the hospitality sector which is facing labour shortages in the order of some 56,000 workers.
Today it has been announced that the Government has ordered a review to be completed by end of April
The independent review will examine:
According to The Australian, DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection), formally known as DIAC, is evaluating a hospitality industry request to fast-track thousands of work visas for foreign chefs and cooks as well as review strict language requirements that require workers to have ‘functional English’ under the 457 visa.
Other industries are demanding that DIBP tunes into reality and waives the English language requirements and axes the $53,900 minimum salary. These may be moderated but won’t be abandoned.
Of equal concern is the period of time it takes to issue a visa. In a candidate lead market Australian employers will lose candidates unless they sharpen up their own decision making processes coupled with the government turning round visas in no more than 2 weeks. With the technology that is available today it is entirely possible.
