Immigration in Australia – Unions and business alliance oppose cuts

In a rare alliance, the Australian Council of Trade Unions, the Australian Industry Group and a suite of national peak bodies have said they collectively “affirm that Australia’s permanent migration program is essential to Australian society and economy and do not support any reduction to the scheme”.

“Our permanent migration program has been central to Australia’s economic and social development and will be critical to Australia’s future as a productive and globally integrated economy and society.”

Australia has an annual permanent migration intake of about 190,000, divided, roughly, into about two-thirds skilled, and one-third family reunion visas.

This is exclusive of its humanitarian program, which is 16,250 this year.
