In today's Advertiser, page 2, right hand sight on the top, was a little article about a statement from a politician stating migration should be put on hold! I've forgotten the name but he used to be Immigration Minister around 2003 or so.
The reasons why he would put it on hold a) too much unemployed people b) worse economy than other states. Nothing new for us who live here but interesting to find it in the daily papers on page 2 as it seems to unsettle some people 'in charge'. The article also stated that many on family visas struggle to find work due to either lack of qualification or tough employment situation here in SA.
