Following the news that the Federal Government has today announced their plans to abolish the 457 visa and replace it with two new visas – One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has come out swinging saying that “cancelling only four hundred and fifty-seven visas is not nearly enough”
“And he’s technically only cancelling four hundred and fifty-five visas if he’s going to introduce two new ones straight after” Pauline Hanson roared.
“I don’t care if the only reason you did this was to appease me and my senators. Four hundred and fifty seven is soft”
Turnbull’s proposed scheme means Australians will get first priority when it comes to jobs that have been filled by international workers that were brought in because there was a deficit in Australians with those skillsets.
Mr Turnbull said the new system would be “manifestly, rigorously, resolutely conducted in the national interest”.
Pauline says she doesn’t know what any of those words mean and she’s not interested in learning what they mean. She says that people voted for her on the basis that there would be no one else coming into this country and 457 quite frankly isn’t enough action.
