Some good initiatives for further collaboration, to get the remote Aussie infrastructure built (should you have the skills' shortages): Identical culture, identical language,same work standards in heavy engineering work.

I am pleased to add that anti-Western astroturfer, Mr Humbert, is not an American. He's not even a Westerner.

Fortunately, because Humbert's only skills seem to be screaming slander, and making an a$$ of himself, he will not be employed in some deep Aussie mine-shaft planning for your annihilation.

Thought I'd get in early before non-Western troll Humbert twists this news' article into something else. ;)

It's a tough sell, I agree.

However, someone's got to do it and the salaries in the isolated mining-engineering industry will probably provide plenty of incentive. Particularly for Americans used to working in isolated projects all over US territories (from deserts to the Arctic).

Still, it's a tough job in remote Australia for Aussies too from big cities.

Your people are also nice and recreation time will be well spent I'm sure (eg. beaches, the cities).

Might be good for a Discovery Channel reality-show documentary too (like the Deadliest Catch - desert-style, well, not really): ie. working in extreme environments

Arsies are smart getting yanks to do their construction work for them . They're hard workers who don't take tea breaks every hour. They have good work ethics and with luck they may be passed on to arsie "workers".

Ah, Humbert's juvenile-brained, yet middle-aged, lard-a$$ed disciple has graced this thread first. ;)

Haven't read a lot of your shyte lately, Oliver. Have you got all emotionally disturbed again this weekend ?)

What a stupid comment of yours. The norm, unfortunately. Plenty of skilled Americans also work in Canada too. As do Aussies. And, vice versa.
Get with the program.

Hmmmm....Looks like Oliver has moved town since the Timmins' Mayor had a word with his mum. lol

North American workers are more productive and work harder than arsies, bet that's why you turned your back on your country and went to arstrailia for the slower pace.

You have also picked up the arsie form of debate i.e call as many names and you win...childish to say the least!

P.S. Learn to spell, your postings are very juvenile.

Ahh, i hate to break it to you all but Australia is going through a general slow down in its economy including construction and manurfacturing.

Australia does not need any workers at the moment,what we should be doing is training our own people to do the few jobs availble. unless they want unemployed Australians to militarize and join far right anti immergration groups.

Also the worst thing about this idea is that the numbers comming here will be uncapped this is an outrage, so 150 million yanks can land tommorrow. Fark that, im not anti American in anyway im just anti immergration full stop,from the Experience this country has suffered from recent Muslim and African imergration .

This idea is probarly one of labor's hair brained idea to prop up the house prices out of reach for Australian BORN.I thought they would do somthing like this open the door to wealthy Americans and Europeans desperate to flee the're multi culti paradises.

Spelling ? Aw...Surely, better than yours. ;)

Working in Australia ? Like working here as much as in Canada. I've lived and worked in four countries. However, no matter where US interests lie, USA will always be home.

However, UK, Australia and Canada are great places to live and work.

Do you work ?

More blacks and Latinos will come. Whites too lazy to work these jobs especially move overseas...they can't move their trailer homes for one. And no one makes friend food like US pigs.

Welfare payments for a Somalian refugee and his 8 kids can be quite high, to bad you are leeching off of Canadian society, hopefully Canada finally wakes up and shafts you monkeys back to the shithole 3rd world cesspool you came from.
