Reseach shows economy losing out due to the untapped potential of migrant workers

The study, conducted by the Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre, found that 35 per cent of non-English-speaking migrant workers were considered over-qualified for their jobs, compared to 10 per cent of Australian-born employees.  Report author Alan Duncan of Curtin University said improved skills, coupled with better education and training, could add $6 billion to Australia’s economy.
