Forbidden Doughnut: gaspode: thisispete:The average Kiwi living in Australia pays more in tax than the average Australian and gets far less in return.And yet Australians continue to believe their lying shiatbag politicians who use kiwis as scapegoats to deflect from their own failures. Sad reallyI see a direct parallel with the United States here...
maddermaxx: Bah, slagging all of us because of some right wingers is pretty stupid. Just because some right wing derpers and Murdoch's News.com.au are trying to find some ways to Americanise the country's politics is no reason to blame the rest of us.
Lehk: if they could prove there was a job waiting at their destination.imokwiththis.jpgas long as the relocation itself is legal, what is the problem with a social services agency helping clients relocate to a job they have secured but are unable to afford or secure their own relocation costs? (as long as costs are reasonable and secured job is credible , long term, and within the skillset of the client)

thisispete: Mantour: as it states: "since then Kiwis receiving the dole have been able to apply for money to migrate to Australia, if they could prove there was a job waiting at their destination."But can they collect the Australian Dole?No, they can't. No New Zealander who has arrived since 26 February 2001 can collect Australian welfare. There's no path to citizenship (except by marriage or the same rules for other nationalities), so there are very few New Zealanders living in Australia who can collect Australian welfare. Even when there are emergency payments for floods, bush fires or other natural disasters.The average Kiwi living in Australia pays more in tax than the average Australian and gets far less in return.
starsrift: Australia's pretty hungry for employees right now, so this makes a lot of sense.
Aussie_As: starsrift: Australia's pretty hungry for employees right now, so this makes a lot of sense.As an Australian administration contractor (with much experience in a range of environments doing a broad range of challenging work looking for relatively simple work for which I should be vastly overqualified) whose last government employment contract ran out in October and who just spent most of the last month terrifyingly underemployed, I think this is changing fast. A lot of Australian companies are shrinking and laying off workers. Mining is slowing down for the time being, governments are cutting services to the bone and offering voluntary redundancies, job ads are well down. The last six months have all been bad news, even if we're better off than many because our financial regulatory systems (one of few things I'll compliment former Treasurer Peter Costello for) worked when many were going mad on the global financial bubble.Thankfully I found a job which should run a few months or longer with a private company. I won't name it but it's a multinational distribution firm with 'independent distributors' (ie members of the public) selling to their friends and signing up new members for fun and profit. Their business model is holding up really well in this time of belt-tightening and sales are booming. It's more the exception than the rule for most Australian workplaces right now though.
steerforth: Let me guess, you're a troll from Brisbane. Don't like the brown much up there, eh?
