MORE than 60 per cent of refugees to Australia have failed to get a job after five years, according to a damning Federal Government report into the humanitarian settlement program.

And 83 per cent of those households now rely on welfare payments for income.

The greatest unemployment rate was recorded among new arrivals from Iraq and Afghanistan, with less than one in 10 finding full-time work and 93.7 per cent of households receiving Centrelink payments.

The statistics are contained in a Department of Immigration and Citizenship report released last Friday under the cover of the royal wedding.

It is the first investigation into settlement of refugees in more than a decade.

The study of more than 8500 humanitarian entrants revealed that only 31 per cent of humanitarian refugees were considered "employed" after five years.

The remainder were unemployed, retired, studying full time, engaged in caring duties, doing voluntary work or trying to start a business from which they had yet to receive income.More than 60 per cent of those people without jobs had a poor command of English.

This is a good reason not to vote for the Greens or Labour...

by air are not the refugees, they bring money to Australia and live here. Refugees of Vietnam were mix up, alot of them are Vietcong, In the camp they loved trouble and rape, but some of them can share welfare with us too! what can we do? alot of refugees came here and became gangster. that's why I dont like much of the refugees young boys, under 15 years are ok, over 15 years are really hard to teach and learn. Also Australia have not enough police officials.

Besides unemployment refugees bring in diseases.
I am not sure if it has made national news or not? but a School here in Perth has been shut due to a TB scare.

Evidenty a teachers Aid from some shit hole in Africa has TB and was coughing all over the kids.They have to screan everyone in the School.
TB was eradicated here in Australia 40 years ago, however Africoons are bringing it back.

So if anyone asks " what a Black Africoons good for ? " you can reply " spreading TB ! "

i don't want any of them here. They're largely not good for Australia that's for sure. It's about time the Australia public were given a say on the matter by way of a referendum.
