A govt web site to list jobs for immigrants cost 1.15 million to set up and $86,400.00 a year to run... after a year it has 2 job vacancies listed, one for a nurse and one for a hairdresser.



OK. Which one of you guys pulled the wool over thier eyes?

I could have done it for $10k and had ten times as many vacancies on it (vacancies for overpriced web designers, hosters, consultants, and managers)

The $1.15 million setup cost probably includes at least $500k worth of meetings between bureaucrats deciding whether such a website was needed or who was going to provide the solution.

I would have thought there would be hundreds of job vacancies for taxi drivers.
