The dilemma is that, most of the sufferers are highly skilled, highly skilled constituents. She had also managed to get the cause debated in Parliament, yet the Immigration Right Network have been making substantial efforts to support the Highly Skilled Migrants, recently leading to a Test Case being heard at the Court of Appeal.

This is my darling mum, Phyllis, she had dementia and died in March 2012.
Her aged care facility did not care about her.
Food is a very important part of care, and often the only thing residents have to look forward to, for many it's the focus of their day. The facility served food that she and others found unpalatable and inedible, cheap junk food, hot food often served cold AND badly cooked to boot! At times she’d go without anything from midday till 8am the next day - that’s 20 hours without food. And she would have starved if I hadn’t intervened, Mum feared complaining because she’d be told off like a child and once was slapped by a staff member.
When I complained, the aged care facility threatened me with an intervention order and ten years jail for stalking. And when I spoke out about THAT, people got in touch sharing horror stories of neglect and abuse and thanked me for speaking out – the common thread was shortage of staff and inadequate basic care leading to neglect.
Many of the elderly and their families won’t complain for fear of retribution. This is when I realised the lack of staff ratios was a huge problem. With no mandated staff / resident ratios in aged care facilities across Australia, our elders are at risk of abuse and neglect.
What I see is a system that needs changing. Over-worked staff are stressed and undervalued.
In many aged care homes, one staff member can care for 20 or more residents with residents waiting for long periods to receive the care they urgently need by overstretched carers and nurses who feel that they can never get the job done.
Anthony Albanese, if you really care about elderly Australians mandate staff/resident ratios for all aged care facilities across Australia, to protect our elders, to keep them safe, respected and valued.Read more

As a community we all are aware that many migrant workers are actively doing their job in essential services even in this hard time. They are risking their live serve the communities in this tragic time.
We strongly believe that they should get support from our government. Essential skill work visas should not be attached to their employers, these visa attachments give the employers the opportunity to exploit the vulnerable migrant workers. We must recognize the migrants working on the front line during this global pandemic.
One year stand down period to be removed for those workers whose employers support their visas. Thus, making them not illegal so they can stay here and make a living. Many companies have shortage of staff such as drivers, rest home workers and supermarket staff. These low skill category businesses should be added to the skills shortage list for the time of the pandemic. The immediate of their demands are: Equal pay Food at the shift Avoid the discrimination and bullying Financial Assist from MSD Maintain confidentiality Protection from exploitation Fair Pay agreement. We believe these are genuine demands which should be given consideration by the government on a strict policy change.Read more

***PARTNERS & CUSTOMERS***
While we love serving our customers and community every day, it is time we fess up. Our baristas and shift supervisors can no longer foot the bill for our underpaid and over utilized work force. We are given access to spotify and headspace instead of adequate mental health care. We are given a free pound of coffee and free beverages instead of a fair living wage. We are given a food item a day instead of ensuring partners can escape food insecurity via their own labor.
Unfortunately after more that a decade of fighting silently inside our stores for a living wage, our partners (in federal min $ states) are still making just over the minimum wage. It would be fruitless to list our ever growing job descriptions here, but nevertheless we continue to add more onto our work duties with mockingly low compensation. We DESERVE the right to a fair wage and the ability to negotiate those wages. As most of you have noticed, we were once again given a small raise (0.10-0.75) this January as we watched our store level benefits shrink and beverage prices rise.
It is time for our leadership to explain how our CEO Kevin Johnson is making upwards of 1000 times the lowest earning partners, the share holders saw record returns for FY18, Tens of Millions were awarded in top executive bonus programs, we hosted thousands of upper management partners to a private John Legend concert, and opened a hugely successful roastery in Chicago,but our baristas were given free spotify. We are no longer willing to remain silent, it is time we demanded answers and action.
We have a number of considerations that need to be heard. Including but not limited to:
1. Fair Living Wages (baristas starting $15 s.s. $18)
2. Sick leave without unfair intimidation
3. A workers liaison board made up of 50% store level partners and 50% district, regional , and national partners.
4. Stop the use of pseudo-benefits to subdue the need for real healthcare, living wages, and the end of food insecurity in our daily lives.
You can help make sure your favorite baristas are compensated and treated fairly by signing and sharing this petition as well as calling 1-800-235-2883 to let Starbucks know that we deserve better. Then, next time you're through, remind your baristas that you see them and agree they deserve better. After all, you should be able to afford the products you sell, right?Read more

Petition to office of the national statistics, Government , Business Department of the government
I would like the term low skilled to be removed from the office of national statistics. To have bus drivers classified as skilled workers. To have bus drivers classified as key workers. The term low skilled is demeaning and an insult to bus drivers and carers etc etc. Bus drivers spend over two considered professional drivers so should be considered skilled workers.
In line with my job as a bus driver I saved someone's life, we are responsible for everything that happens on the bus. We should be recognised as skilled key workers.Read more
