SOME JOBS WHITE PEOPLE JUST WON'T DO:

Supply fails to satisfy skilled labour demand (Kelly Burke, July 26, 2011, Sydney Morning Herald)

ALMOST two thirds of large companies are considering hiring staff from overseas to overcome skills shortages, according to a recent national salary survey by the Australian Institute of Management.

Recruiting difficulties are chronic in construction and engineering, sales and marketing and manufacturing/trades, but primarily at the professional and technical level, not at the blue-collar level. Nurses, childcare workers, cooks, hairdressers and butchers are also in short supply, according to the most recent skill shortage list published by the federal government.
