"No worker on a 457 visa is paid a salary higher than the going rate for Australians doing the same job."
The above statement is proved by Immigration department (federal govt.) reports.
It is not true.
Plenty of 457 visa holders are paid above the going rate.
Government reports are lies? Hmmm.... well.....Yes and No (in the best traditions of "Yes Minister").
Mine Host knows the government reports are falsified. The government knows the reports are falsified.
How is this done?
As part of the application process sponsoring employers must provide "Evidence" of the going rate the vacant job.
However, you are not allowed to submit any evidence that shows a pay rate below a figure set by the immigration dept.
You couldn't make this up!
