Stop allowing big business to replace Aussie jobs with exploited overseas visa workers

Stop allowing big business to replace Aussie jobs with exploited overseas visa workers

Mr. Morrison,

As you yourself said, Australia should be a country where if you have a go, you’ll get a go.

I stand with the seafarers sacked by BHP, to be replaced by exploited foreign overseas visa workers. They had a go, and got themselves a secure job working for one of Australia’s biggest companies.

That was until you manipulated the approval of licenses and visas for foreign-crewed ships to come in to Australia and do the same work for third-world wages.

I am signing this petition to demand that you commit to protecting local jobs. I want an end to the licensing of foreign-vessels to do work on Australia’s coastline.

I want you to start putting local workers ahead of the profits of big business.

Why is this important?

Nearly 80 Australian seafarers have been sacked by BHP and replaced with exploited overseas visa workers.

These should be Australian jobs for Australian workers, but Scott Morrison's Government chose BHP's profits over the jobs of locals.

Reasons for signing

  • I am fed up with the Australian Government cutting permanent Australian jobs by using overseas companies which employ less and pay lower rates. This is no good for australian workers long term.
  • stop people coming to Australia if they are Refugees to "protect our borders" but you sack Australian workers so exploited overseas workers can come in, take Australian jobs to increase the profits of your big end, tax avoiding friends?????
  • what was his media plug last election "jobs and innovation" then this jerk sells out and exploits with the aid of a no doubt cashed up BHP donating to the party 80 maritime workers to be replaced with cheap labour, this mongrel has to go
