35000 jobs in Australia to go to overseas workers

MORE than 35,000 jobs in the Australian tourism industry are going begging, prompting the head of Tourism Australia to look overseas to solve the problem.

Tourism Australia Managing director Andrew McEvoy said the industry had suggested providing “special visas” to allow foreign guest workers to fill the positions ignored by Australians.“I understand there are more than 35,000 job vacancies in our industry today – and a lot are the entry level jobs,” Mr McEvoy said in an interview for this week’s Doc Holiday blog on

“Many in the industry suggest that special visas are required to get the workers for these roles.”

It is apparent that much of the problem has been created by the rush to get jobs and the higher wages found in the mining sector. The industry had pushed for special visas to overcome the shortage.
