There Is One Kind Of Person Who Is Now BANNED From Maccas

FOREIGNERS will be barred from taking up jobs at fast food restaurants in a federal government crackdown.

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton is reportedly scrapping a former Labor government’s deal that allowed major fast food outlets to import staff on 457 visas.

McDonalds, Hungry Jack’s and KFC will be barred from sponsoring foreign workers on 457 visas, which are intended to fill temporary skill shortages, The Daily Telegraph reports.

“The Aussie kid shouldn’t be knocked out of the job by a foreign worker, which is what Bill Shorten did,” Mr Dutton said.

The workers will be forced to leave Australia once their agreements run out unless the restaurant is able to present an individual case as to why they should remain in the country.

It is the first time an entire sector has been banned from using the visas.
