Pieter Boon started this petition to Peter Dutton (Minister for Home Affairs) and

The ICC World Cup Cricket is using foreign workers on their broadcast. taking jobs away from skilled Australians.

They claim that there aren't any workers available which is completely untrue. 

This starts a dangerous precedent where the skilled Australian worker has been casualised and is living under financial stress already without having foreign workers undercutting the pay rate and taking jobs away from skilled Australians.

This is part of the Australian Government's program - Match Australia - which

"will promote Australian capability and enhance business opportunities across trade, investment, education and tourism with India."

How this equates to not using Australian Broadcast professionals to crew the entire broadcast and paying below industry rates is a matter for public attention and outrage.
