This is an utterly disgraceful tax grab on 457 visa holders, who have no voice or say in the matter. There is no clear justification for this in anyway shape or form. In implementing this WA is implementing a tax for a minority. By the same measure why not tax interstate residents here or Kiwi's. Most people are unaware that as 457 holders there is no entitlement to family tax benefit, school payment bonus, tax relief in any way shape or form at either federal or state level. Not too mention having to pay double for the same health insurance as a citizen or a PR. This measure can only be designed to drive 457 holders out of the country.
