How much 457 visa-holders get paid and where they come from
Taking a deeper look at the governments facts and figures
Australia’s 457 Temporary Worker visa program is on the lips of lawmakers again as both the government and the opposition promise to tighten eligibility requirements for businesses and applicants under the scheme.
According to a departmental report issued in June 2016, there are almost 95,000 temporary skilled migrants in Australia under the program.
A total of 55 per cent of applications were granted to “professionals”, with 23 per cent granted to technical and trade workers and 17 per cent granted to managers.
We dived a little deeper into that report to see where those workers were coming from, where they were going, what jobs they were doing and how much they were getting paid.
