The ACTU welcomes the opportunity to make an initial submission to the Ministerial Advisory Council on Skilled Migration to review the Skilling Australians Fund (SAF) Levy. Australia has an underclass of exploited temporary visa holders, and a temporary skilled visa system that is driven by the interests of business rather than the interests of the Australian people. Fundamental transformation of Australia’s visa system is required to end the exploitation of temporary visa holders and ensure local workers have opportunities.
