Title Asian Skilled Labour Migration: ‘Multicultural Contextual Gaps’ as Employment Barriers for Japanese NESB Professionals in Australia Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Asian Currents Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 1/05/23 Description Skilled labour migration addresses challenges such as aging workforces and skill shortages. Asia now supplies a significant number of highly skilled migrants to transnational labour markets, with one-third in OECD countries originating from Asia. To tackle skill shortages, countries like Australia attract and retain skilled migrants.
However, post-migration presents challenges, including under-utilisation of skills and limited occupational mobility, especially for disadvantaged groups like women and racial-ethnic minorities from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESBs). Understanding how skilled migrants' skills are defined, regulated, and utilized, as well as the factors causing employment disadvantages for Asian NESB skilled migrants, is crucial for promoting inclusivity.
