Immigration overshoot – CPUR

The latest report from CPUR, the Centre for Population and Urban Research at Monash Uni (http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/cpur/) has been released and is entitled “Immigration Overshoot”. This from the report’s Summary:


“Australia has been in the grip of a boom mentality over the last decade. As in other such booms, governments and business enterprises seem to lose the capacity to reality-test claims, such as those from the Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency, that Australia faces enormous growth in the demand for workers.” and  “This report argues that the immigration intake is too high. It shows that under the current employment conditions several of the major visa subclasses need to be culled.”
