Default Australia Demographics, Population, Migration, Skills Shortages,Student Safety & FNQ

From Bernard Salt Australia’s preeminent demographer: THE time has
come to set out the facts with regard to the issue of demographic
gearing …….. notion that from 2011 onwards more baby boomers will exit
than Generation Ys will enter the workforce, thereby depleting the
rate of growth in the Australian tax base. This is the primary and
compelling argument behind the recent push for elevated levels of

Hidden Unemployment - The official unemployment rate just released by
the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) for September was 5.7 per
cent. It was viewed by those in the government with great optimism of
how Australia is resisting the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), however,
is that unemployment rate a true indication of the level of
unemployment, or indeed an accurate reflection on the actual state of
the labour market in Australia? http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/stor...0.htm#comments

Chefs and hairdressers will top the list of most sought-after jobs as
Australia emerges from the wake of the global financial crisis. It is
thought that the highly transient nature of these jobs, with a high
turnover and burnout rate, contributes to the skills shortage in these
areas and the inability of supply to meet demand.

Top Ten Occupations with the highest levels of skill shortages
according to the Clarius Index chefs, hairdressers, health
professionals, metals tradespeople, food tradespersons, computing
professionals, automotive tradespersons, building & engineering
professionals/associates and science professionals.

Australia tops class for student safety. Foreign students have rated
Australia as the safest place in the world to study, despite recent
international media coverage of attacks on Indian students in
Australia. The survey included 6,000 students from eight countries.
