That changes will be published on the world news headlines is designed by ‘Australian First’ ideology which mainly effects on Australian jobs through their new regulations. It does not indicate that Australia wants to get cleared of migrants, in fact, migrants play a serious role in filling jobs for which local Australian talent cannot be found and the new rules only confirm that employers meet the standards to succeed this goal.
These rules are mainly targeted to set migrant workers and ensure that migrants don’t misuse the rules
