So this morning there has been the swearing-in of the new Gillard Government cabinet. Included in this reshuffle is the outgoing of Minister Chris Bowen and the incoming of Minister Brendan O’Connor as Minister for Immigration & Citizenship. It is the 3rd Immigration Minister in less than 3 years (see here).
I congratulate and look forward to working with the new minister, however my question is what will an ex-union official bring to the table when it comes to tackling the labour shortage in WA and importing foreign labour? Where does his interests lie?
Read up on our new minister here.
