WA is going back to 2007 rapidly. Shortage of workers and a lot of pressure on small business to meet demands. Not everybody is going to earn $150k a year; good luck to the ones that do but this will cause again huge problems to local industries in Perth and surrounding areas. We need to have a better plan than last time to fill the gaps in WA that the mining boom creates or we are going to have the same situation. The opportunity for the Governments and business is now before it all compounds
