Yea there's some awkward conversations to have around this and the wage suppression effect of imported skilled labour. There's definitely some jobs on our current regional 'skills shortage list' that we can fill locally - AFAIK, universities have no problems firing out accountants each year.

Around the world the tech sector is one of the most highly paid, if anything, I believe this'll raise wages as companies will be able/need to compete for talent.

National should just campaign on this basis:

 

Put up billboards everywhere that says "1990s, here we go again!" and leave it at that. They have nothing meaningful, let alone anything original, to contribute.

 

RIP.
