Queensland Mining Immigration Skills Shortage

Queensland Mining Immigration Skills Shortage

Looming labour crisis in Queensland will force new wave of immigration. A LOOMING skills crisis will force Queensland to look to overseas migration to supply thousands of skilled workers.The shortage is the result of a booming mining industry and the imminent retirement of waves of baby boomers, and flies in the face of growing calls for migration caps.The lack of skills has already led to an admission from the mining sector some coal mines could be forced to close because of a lack of highly qualified safety officers who must be on site at all hours of operation.

Business expects more than 4.4 million workers will be needed nationally over the next 15 years simply to replace retiring baby boomers, while another 4.8 million workers will be needed to deal with growth.
