Include racing jobs on new condensed Australian skilled visa list!
The occupation lists which are used to determine which occupations are eligible for certain skilled visa subclasses(including 457 visa) have been significantly condensed.
With racing jobs removed from these lists, the racing industry of Australia may face huge problems in the future trying to fill such positions. Trainers will struggle to maintain their businesses without a sufficient number of skilled workers(many trainers are already short staffed as it is!!) Currently, foreign workers are the back bone of this industry. Every second track rider, strapper or jockey you meet are from overseas. And many need Australia as much as Australia needs them because opportunities can be so limited in their home countries.
Australia is a place with opportunity and demand for foreign workers in racing. So please please sing this petition and share it with your friends family work colleagues etc so that Turnbull can realise what a huge mistake he is making!
