Abbott's 457 changes: destroying employment opportunities for Australians in the midst of a jobs crisis

A widening of the 457 Visa scheme – expected to be announced by the Abbott Government today – would further undermine the working conditions of Australians, removing even more employment opportunities for the half a million people currently looking for full time work.

Unemployment levels are at their highest in 12 years, and youth unemployment is at crisis point – with some regions of the country experiencing up to 30 per cent youth unemployment.
