You talk of the ineptness of the government but did you investigate the waiting times and the quota system associated with this visa?
I know you have been waiting 5 years but have you considered looking for an employer who would be willing to sponsor you on alternative form of visa that may be granted more quickly?
Good luck on a class action you will need deep pockets to take on the Federal Government.

You're going after the wrong people. Immigration have not just been sitting on their laurels on your visa for 5 years. No doubt they were ready to grant it just months after you applying (or maybe less). The problem is there are many more applicants for your visa type than there are spaces for it. How many spaces are allocated to each visa type each year are not Immigration's decision. It's the people who make the laws of this country who give Immigration their budget and ultimately determine how many people are given visas and what visa types they will be. The only way to potentially solve this is a different administration that is not so anti-immigration. And that can only be changed by voters.

Did you know there is a visa subclass with so many applicants and so few slots that it has an estimated FIFTY YEAR wait? Yeah. Insane. It may suck to think of the five years you've lost and the money you've lost waiting for this visa, but if you qualify for a different (skilled) visa type, they're correct - you'd be much better off going that route.

Original Nationality: US
Visa #1: PMV (300) through Washington, D.C
Applied: April 2013.
Visa Granted: January 2014.
Visa #2: Subclass 820 (From PMV).
Applied: End of April 2014.
Visa Granted: Early July 2014.
Visa #3: 801 (PR)
Eligibility Date: End of April 2016 (Applied a month prior).
PR Granted: Early April 2017.

As has been said the government decides what numbers are allocated for a visa.

If you have the skills you would be alot better off applying for a different visa. You don't know how much longer you will have to wait.

I am not sure how much luck you would have with the media. The truth is unless they have something to do with visa's the Australian public don't care about visa's and you won't find alot of them sympathetic. There is actually alot of pressure at the moment for the government to stop the 457 visa because people feel they are taking jobs from Australian's.

Unfortunately you may not have much luck with the government and all you can do it wait or apply for another visa.
