What skill shortage, I work in construction industry and the only jobs I can find are shutdowns and that is not full time but working 1 week a month. All this talk of skill shortage has been going on for years so the industry had plenty of time to train or reskill Australians if we really had a shortage. I believe its only an excuse to import more 457 workers and cut conditions and wages of Australian workers.
