ಕಾಂಗರೂಗಳ ನಾಡಿನ ಇನ್ನೊಂದು ಮುಖ!
Im writing this letter in response to Mr Premachandran Rajaratnams letter. I respect Mr Premachandran Rajaratnams view of about Migrants in Australia, but I strongly disagree his views on Migrants situation here in Australia, especially on his "Main difficulties faced by skilled migrants to AUS".
Below is my comments to his views in bold, Italics font, I would really appreciate if you could publish this, otherwise this article may give different picture back home at India.
1. End up paying mortgage on their house until death or often beyond that pass the mortgage to children. This is no different to any average Australians. Its not just for Indian Migrants, this is true for any Migrants, Indian, Chinese, Europeans etc etc, and of course to Australians.
This is not just the case in Australia, its the same in India & America, I guess thats life...on Australian housing market is the most expensive (average house price / average income) in the world. Average house price is A$500,000. Average gross salary of migrants $52,500/year which after tax is $35,000. After essential expenses they are left with $15,000/ year to pay $500,000 mortgage its true for Sydney, but there are other cities where its cheap, once again its no different to any Australians
2. Poor school for the kids. Education here is no different to any western countries, Average education in Australia may be better than average in India or China but if one take average on big cities in India or China where most of you come from, the education quality is much better in India or China is far better than Australia. depends how you see it, if you see the toppers for HSC, you will see few Indians, I know few students who done exceptionally well in their academic education.
3. Ever increasing cost of higher education. Mr Premachandran Rajaratnam, have you ever gone back & asked how much does it cost for education these days in India, let alone HIGHER education Migrants and their children will share the high cost of University education because Migrants give more importance to Education compared to local Australians. Higher education in Australia is a joke. Increasingly many Australian employers do not respect them. The reason being they look for people who has more hand-on practical experience. Its hard for people to get a break, once you do get a job, it shouldnt be that hard, I really dont see your point. There are many court challenges against the poor education in Universities.
4. Majority of skilled migrants fall in 30k to 60k salary bracket who pay the most taxes in Australia to care the aging population. As i mentioned before, this is no different to any Australians, I think I dont have to elaborate this point anymore......
5. Migrants progress in work place will be always limited to certain level. They are often underemployed. Of course they cant compete with communication skills of natural Australian and they are in the office place to be slave all the way while their colleagues stayed back become as Executives in their later lives.
I dont think I need to write my view after showing how negative you are from beginning...to be quite frank, dont get me wrong, why dont you go back home, I see lot of Executive opportunities in India.
The situation you are facing may be different, but again you dont have to be so negative & go on explaining this on web sites, everyone in their life may have experience these thing doesnt matter which part of the world in, even I can go on & on about it, but lets leave at that & If you think I have offended you in anyway, please forgive me....
