I'm signing because local jobs should be given to local people. It is a load of rubbish that we are short on skilled workers. Train our kids and look after local workers

This is a serious threat to my job security. As an Australian I should be able to work freely in my own country. I should be without fear of being replaced by sub standard, non australian tax paying labour.
