Great link. The stand out figure for me is that 457 visa holders make up only 1% of the workforce, pay taxes and generate a huge amount of revenue through visa fees.

One important change they overlooked was the requirement to agree the number of nominees a company can sponsor during their SBS term. The DIBP now essentially have huge amounts of control over how many people can be nominated in the visa programme and can generate a lot of extra revenue through companies having to reapply for SBS approval more often. Commentators that make out the programme is unregulated and out of control have an agenda that isn't based on the true facts.

The loathed 'Labour Market Testing' criteria for business sponsors is now being mocked as the 'Facebook Test' as the watered-down criteria continues to draw the ire of unions. The Coalition is not flinching, leaving it to a junior minister to brush-off criticisms. That's what a convincing election mandate can do.
