"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.
However 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 the sponsoring employer provides "Market Evidence" of the going rate in Australia for similar positions.
However, sponsoring employers must not submit any market evidence that shows a pay rate less than the pay offered to the sponsored worker.
You couldn't make this up!
