There are several companies that are misusing the 457 visa. Local workers are missing out because on several mining and Oil & Gas projects companies are bringing workers on 457 visas from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and UK on low rates but are not able to retain them or don't care if they leave and work elsewhere in Australia. Sometimes they leave after the first rotation when they realise that the pay they were brought across on is quite low, mostly at the pub on their break and leave. This rort has to be stopped and authorities have to come down hard on companies found guilty
