WELL SAID !!!!!! SECOND THAT !!!!! Graham, Aberdeenshire/ScotlandThis irritates me so much..... Not those who start off with good intentions, but financial realities bite and job = money = life.
It's the sanctimonious posters who either have a job, don't need one or have enough cash to hold out but feel duty bound to pontificate over those watching dwindling savings and getting offers elsewhere.
Really......commute to another state...
Sponsorship is a two way street. If the state gives you a valuable place it's because they believe there are jobs for you, if the jobs aren't there the both sides are affected. The state has to deal with rent assist, etc.
Granted there are a few who apply to say ACT fully intending to move elsewhere but most of the griping comes from those who couldn't take advantage of the system.
For me, Adelaide's where I should be, but sure as helll when the agent rings up from Brisbane and says would you interview next week on a job paying 180k..... I book the plane without thinking.
