I heard about this on talk back radio a few weeks ago. 457 visa's serve their purpose, because, to be frank, there are many jobs that need to be done which Australian's are simply not willing to do. The hotel industry in particular relies heavily on 457 workers because Australian's are not willing to clean toilets and change bed sheets.
