Australian Immigration Unemployment
“HIGH immigration is harming the job prospects of young Australians, says a Monash University study.
The report found about 200,000 migrants who arrived here over the last two years had found work.
This equalled the total number of new jobs created in Australia over the same period.
Monash population expert Dr Bob Birrell said Australians faced ferocious competition from the new arrivals, especially in less-skilled jobs in areas such as manufacturing, retail, construction and food services.”
Birrell and Healy have made a subjective statistical correlation between headline number of “immigrants” and jobs available, with neither qualitative evidence, nor evidence of a direct causal link (something they should understand as “researchers”).
However, that is not the point, have Birrell et al, in decades of “immigration research” ever found anything positive about “immigrants”?
This “research” is not surprising as he had contributed, possibly unwittingly on numerous occasions, to John Tanton’s journal “The Social Contract Press” in the USA. The Social Contract, at best, has been described as the fulcrum for “white nationalists” obsessed with immigration and sustainable population growth, masquerading as care for the environment (described as “green washing”).
