Australia needs skilled workers not more uni graduates.

Much has been made of the fact that Australia has escaped the worst of the global financial slowdown over the past year but there remains a critical challenge to its long-term economic stability. In short, the problem is this: there are too many students studying at university for the Australian economy to realise its potential, and there is an urgent need to redress the balance.I agree, most skill shortages areas are in the VET vocational area which prospective migration candidates are encouraged to fill. However, Australians are encouraged to attend university in greater numbers to study anything and seem unaware of skill shortage areas e.g. engineering, science, accounting, health, medical, maths science teaching etc.

Does this have anything to do with preference for humanities or general degrees which are not enough for specific occupations?

What is the point, to keep university personnel employed?
