Mining Jobs TV Episode 3  - Unskillled & Entry Level Mining Jobs
MINING JOBS TV Episode 3: Unskillled & Entry Level Mining Jobs Brought to you by www.miningresumes.com - Kick-start your mining career today and email us at [email protected] or call Mining Resumes on 1300 737 863 Welcome to Episode 3 of Mining Jobs TV. Hi my name is Matt and I will be speaking to you today about unskilled and entry level jobs in the Australian mining industry. Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry. You may have probably heard the stories about a friend of a friend who is earning over $100,000 a year on a mine somewhere in Western Australia or Queensland and wondered how you could get a mining job too. Entry level or unskilled jobs, like trade assistants or plant operators are hard to get now as every man and his dog are applying for them. The best way to get these jobs would be to move out to the little mining towns and live there and register with all the labour hire companies, there are hundreds of them. Trades people like fitters, welders, boilermakers and electricians still have a fairly good chance of picking up work on mining sites. If you don't have a trade, doing a rigging or scaffolding course would give you a good chance at getting a job, the courses are only about 4 weeks long, but they are fairly expensive. Other unskilled or basic jobs available include cleaners, laundry workers and kitchen hands which is not difficult if you have hospitality training and experience. Talking to people who are currently working on mining sites can be a big help, especially if you have no previous experience or qualifications. It would be even better if you could get in contact with expats from your own country who are working on mining sites. They can let you know who to call and what you need to do. If you are inexperienced and unqualified you need to be fit and ready for physical labour. The work will be very repetitive and routine based with long 12 hour days, so you really need to be mentally prepared, as well as physically. Some mines will have a very high turnover of workers. This is because many people go to work on the mines not knowing what to expect. Because there can be such a high turnover, you may not start earning big money straight away, although your wages won't be small either. Once you've proved yourself to be a reliable worker, your wages should increase. Most mining companies will run police checks, as well as drug and alcohol tests. Even though there are wet mess areas on-site where workers can unwind and drink alcohol, they do have to drink in moderation and be fit-for-work before their shift starts Shutdowns are exactly what the name suggests. Every now and then mining sites need to shut down for upgrades, maintenance or repairs and they usually hire people temporarily to work during shut downs. A lot of the work is unskilled and doesn't last very long, so it's great for backpackers who want to keep on travelling and don't want to make a full-time commitment. It's also a great way to get your foot in the door and gain valuable on-site experience. To do certain mining jobs you will need to get licences and training, or 'tickets' as they are more commonly known. There are lots of different types of tickets depending on what type of work you're going to do. Some tickets can be very expensive and mines in different states require different tickets, so you really need to do your research before you start spending money on courses. Don't think that just because you're female that the mining companies and recruiters won't consider you. The mining industry in Australia is becoming increasingly gender neutral. It's not just cooking and cleaning jobs either on offer for women either; more and more women are working on Australian mining sites, and in some cases, companies even prefer women for certain jobs. For example, a popular job for women on mining sites is driving a dump truck because research has shown that women are easier on the multi-million dollar equipment yet still get the job done. It's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors. We highly recommended Mining Resumes to prepare your resume as they are the industry leaders in resume preparation for clients seeking jobs in the mining and oil & gas industry. They can be contacted via phone on 1300 RESUME or have a look at their website miningresumes.com with package details and samples browse that demonstrate their quality and experience.

A Career in Coal Mining (JTJS22008)
You need passion and commitment if you want to work in a mine as Craig Glenie finds out when he checks out the life of a miner at one of New Zealand's seven mines. The Huntly East Mine is in the business of coal to the tune of around 40,000 tonnes a month. The physical and environmental challenges of extracting coal can be significant but as Craig discovers, mining is a stable industry offering numerous career opportunities.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

The number of foreign workers in Australia will shock you
FULL SPEECH As an Australian nationalist, I make no apologies for being strong on jobs for Australians first, and that definitely includes apprenticeships. Labor and the coalition on the other hand have quite literally opened the floodgates to foreign workers on visa schemes that have sold out the unemployed and the under-unemployed right across this country. Labor sold out workers in this country by establishing a little-known category called the 400 visa. It was a category that had very little oversight and that gave approval to foreign workers, in as little as 24 hours, to come and take Australian jobs. Hundreds of thousands of workers were employed under the 400 visa category, costing long-term unemployed Australians and university graduates finishing their studies a chance of employment. We had the 457 visa program, where, again under Labor, the floodgates were opened to foreigners to come and take hundreds of thousands of Australian jobs. When Labor lost government in 2013, they were letting 130,000 foreign workers into Australia to take jobs like ship's engineers, ship's officers, radio journalists, magistrates, park rangers, zookeepers, and flight attendants. They are just some of the jobs Labor allowed to go to foreigners. Thankfully, the number of foreign workers on the 457 visa program dropped by 60,000 last year. One Nation was largely responsible for cuts to over 200 of those job categories, some of which I mentioned before. I also note that ACTU Secretary Sally McManus said in July this year that there are 1.4 million visa holders with working rights in Australia. That's disgusting. I have no doubt that these people are hard workers, but the point of my disgust comes down to Australians wanting a job. They have to compete with over one million overseas workers. Both Labor and the coalition have hoodwinked voters in this country. They talk tough on jobs, but they are quietly undermining the unemployed and the future youth, who will one day join the search for a job in Australia. I want to bring to the Senate's attention another real problem that both Labor and the coalition have failed to recognise. The Minister for Jobs and Industrial Relations, Kelly O'Dwyer, last year admitted in a Financial Review interview that 400,000 ABNs were issued to people on visas who are not allowed to work in this country. Australians find that to be so typical of government departments—they don't talk to each other. So, on top of the 1.4 million work visas issued to foreigners, we have a further 400,000 taking jobs from Aussies under the guise of small-business ownership. I note this matter of public importance also highlights the need to protect local manufacturers and Australian grade steel. It's a bit bloody tough to protect Australian grade steel when the Greens, supported by Labor, are constantly trying to shut down mining in this country. You see, Australian-grade steel requires Australian coal, particularly the high-quality coal from my home state of Queensland, along with the high-grade iron ore from my One Nation colleague's home state of Western Australia. When I stayed in camp with 800 miners in Moranbah only a few weeks ago, I learned that the majority of Central Queensland coal mines are producing coking coal, which is one of two key ingredients for Australian-grade steel. Australian coking coal is mixed with Western Australian iron ore to form the best steel in the world. That's why we're exporting these two commodities to countries like China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. They want their bridges and buildings to stand the test of time. But, if the Greens and Labor team up again at the next election with their mutual preference deals, we'll be thrust back to building straw-and-mud homes. The key to using Australian-grade steel and protecting local manufacturers is to stop demonising coal and other mining throughout this country. As for Senator Cameron's approach to my policy on getting apprenticeships in this country, I've done more for the youth of this nation in apprenticeship schemes than Labor have ever done. If it means that rural and regional areas get the chance for their youth to get into apprenticeship schemes then so be it.

SOUNDBITE (English) Bramage Sekete, striking mine worker at AngloGold Ashanti mine: "We are saying today, as the workers, not only the mine workers, but as the workers, we are saying, we need, or we demand, a living wage - sixteen thousand upwards." 5.

SOUNDBITE (South Sotho) Pie Msebenzi, striking mine worker at AngloGold Ashanti mine: "This poster shows that they (management) did not want to listen to the miners of Marikana, where a lot of miners died, regarding the truth that was exposed by the miners of Marikana, about the money that we are paid by these companies." 8. Wide of poster reading (English) "Don't let the police get away with murder" 9. SOUNDBITE (English) Ntseki Mqabe, striking mine worker at AngloGold Ashanti mine: "I can't afford to pay for university right now or technical (college), because I am earning a little money - four thousand (rand) per month. It's a joke. It's peanuts." 10. Wide shot protesting mine worker symbolically digging tarmac on road with his shovel close to AngloGold Ashanti offices STORYLINE Gold miners in Orkney, in the North West province of South Africa, staged a large rally on Wednesday over poor wages and living conditions, union officials said. Thousands of singing, placard-waving workers marched to the headquarters in Orkney of the AngloGold Ashanti mining company, where production has been at a standstill since 26 September when all its miners joined a strike which began on September 20 at its Kopanang mine. The miners, many carrying signs recalling the recent Marikana mine strike, listened to rousing speeches by union officials who asked them not to give up on their demand for a monthly wage of 16-thousand rand (1,898 US dollars). "We demand a living wage - sixteen thousand upwards," said miner Bramage Sekete. Ntseki Mqabe, who also works in the mine, said their salary of four thousand rand (474 US dollars) per month was "a joke. It's peanuts." The strike at AngloGold Ashanti is one of a wave of mining strikes across the country, which began in August at Lonmin's Marikana mines. There police shot dead 34 striking workers on August 16, a level of state violence not seen since the end of apartheid in 1994. A retired judge is currently leading an official inquest into the Marikana incident and related violence that killed at least 44 people. The commission of inquiry will determine the roles played by the police, Lonmin and two mining unions, and whether any of those under investigation could have done something to prevent the violence. In September the Marikana strikers returned to work after accepting a pay increase of up to 22 percent through negotiations that also involved church leaders as mediators. But two of South Africa's most powerful unions said in a joint statement on Tuesday that the Marikana settlement set a bad precedent for labour relations in South Africa. Even as South Africa grapples with the Marikana incident, there appears to be no end in sight to the ongoing labour unrest. Workers have also been on strike for weeks at Anglo American Platinum, the world's largest platinum producer. Similar strikes are ongoing at Gold Fields and Samancor Chrome Western Mine.

Mine workers claim 3 yrs wages
Workers at Gaths Mine in Mashava 40km west of Masvingo have not been paid their wages for almost three years now and they are languishing in poverty and hunger. The situation has been made worse by the continuing legal war between the former owner and government who has placed the mine under judiciary management and later placed it under Ministry of mines. The failure to come up with amicable solution is hitting hard on the workers and their families as described by one of the worker Mr Conrad Phiri said 'how am l supposed to survive for three years without any income? I am a father of three and l also looks after my brother's two daughters. We are obliged to go to work every day only for a roll call. How can l go to work on an empty stomach? Now most of the workers are now engaging in illegal gold panning and doing menial jobs at farms surrounding the mine'. Mr M Nkhoma has also described the situation as grave and calls the powers that be to take a quick action to uplift their lives. He said 'the situation here is so intense, we have lost our dignity. I consider myself lucky because l am a draftsman and l sometimes get personal jobs to draw building plans and that has been sustaining me unlike others who have no source of income but just waiting for the company to pay us.'

Innovation and drones in Australian mining
The Australian minerals industry's latest ad in its Making the Future Possible campaign, promoting the industry’s use of innovation including drone technology. Australia’s world-class mining workforce is the result of industry innovation, attraction of talented employees and investment in employee skills and training. Innovation is central to maintaining Australia’s comparative advantage in mining and helps drive high-value, high-wage jobs in a range of scientific and highly-skilled professional occupations. Drones are important to the minerals sector’s environmental, cultural heritage, safety and productivity performance including: • monitoring turtle nesting sites • improving road safety by monitoring traffic, road conditions and hazards and inspecting overhead cranes, towers and roofs of tall buildings to avoid working at height • making it faster to gather more information about mine sites, saving millions of dollars when compared with using planes for survey work • mapping and digitally recording areas of Indigenous cultural heritage.

Labor has a plan to keep jobs in WA by: - ensuring a fair share of engineering, manufacturing and fabrication jobs for WA; - ensuring deals done with the government will be available for all to see; - allowing local businesses to compete on a level playing field; and - ensuring the benefits of the mining boom flow into local workshops.

The Pilbara Aboriginal Strike
The Pilbara strike of 1946-49 is one of the most dramatic moments in Australia’s indigenous history. Aboriginal people not only defied the owners of pastoral stations in North-West Western Australia by demanding better wages and conditions, but also sought to win independence from their colonial masters. In its aftermath, they acquired considerable freedom and autonomy through co-operative mining and other ventures. The story of this struggle inspired the campaign for Aboriginal rights throughout Australia.

Australia slipped seven places from 8th in 2014 to 15th this year. That’s a significant drop. We can also see that the US is slipping in the ranks moving from 7th in 2014 to 12th this year. The UK didn’t do very well either slipping from 12th to 19th. Although Canada is still in the top 10, it did fall three places. It looks like the big English-speaking Western countries aren’t doing so well. This year’s top 10 include Japan, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Canada, Austria, and Luxembourg. Just out of interest, here are the bottom 15 countries with Bangladesh, Iran, Pakistan, Ukraine, and Iraq rounding out the bottom five — Not many surprises there. So why did Australia slip to 15th? How is this rank calculated? In their report, FutureBrand state that they took the World Bank’s top 75 countries by GDP and reordered them based on how survey recipients rate the dimensions of a country’s Purpose and Experience. Dimensions of Purpose include Value System, Quality of Life, and Business Potential. Dimensions of Experience include Heritage & Culture, Tourism, and Made In (Products & Services). These factors are important in determining the rank as they are vital for quantifying the power of a country’s brand. Brand is based entirely off perception. If a country is seen to have a low quality of life, or a bad value system, or a hard place to set up business, then this will hurt people’s perception of that country. That is, it will hurt the country’s brand. The report outlines four levers that are important in determining a country’s brand. Lever 1: Quality of Life — The new pursuit: Living richly, not just living a rich life. It’s more important than ever for a country to look after the safety, well-being, and happiness of its people. With an emphasis on all people, not just select socioeconomic tiers. Lever 2: Environmental Friendliness — Operation rescue earth. There’s always a trade-off between economic growth, human well-being, and a sustainable future. Countries like Japan are taking the lead. Lever 3: Made In — Products & Services: The badges of a country. A product or brand serves as a powerful symbol of social advancement for a country, and even influences a person’s decision to work, live, or play there. Lever 4: Polarising Politics — The knock-on effect. Perceived tolerance and political freedom are important. If travellers feel threatened by an intolerant country, then they won’t visit and spend their tourism dollars in that country. So let’s get onto Australia. What happened? This is what happened. Quality of Life perceptions degraded the most for both Australia and the UK. In Australia, disposable income has been steadily dropping in the past five years. Homelessness is on the rise due to a lack of affordable housing (with prices increasing by up to 70% over the past decade in New South Wales). As Australian politics tends towards populism, potential visitors, investors, and residents notice this intolerance and growing wealth divide, which directly impacts Australia’s Quality of Life index. FutureBrand’s Asia-Pacific CEO, Richard Curtis, spoke of the outdated way of measuring the success of a country by GDP alone. He said that a positive national brand can boost tourism, business investment and even encourage people to choose one country’s products over another. This is all important stuff. The Australian government is willingly allowing all of this to happen. Cost of living is up. Wages are stagnant. The current government seem to be doing everything in their power to stop house prices from falling. We need house prices to fall so that regular people have enough money to live a comfortable and happy life. We should protest any cuts to Medicare. We shouldn’t allow the government to hunt down Centrelink recipients using robodebt. We should treat each other nicely and look after the environment — not our rich mining mates and faction leaders. As I’ve said before, Australia is slipping. We can see it in the world around us. The wealth divide is growing. Democracy is eroding. And now it’s impacting our international image.

Chevron, get your head out of the sand!
Maritime workers are sick of being blamed for the cost overruns and delays on Chevron's Gorgon project in Western Australia. Our wages make up less than one per cent of the cost of building Gorgon, yet Chevron and their henchmen consistently blame us for the project's problems. Get your head out of the sand, Chevron. Workers aren't to blame for the problems on Gorgon. Management is. This is part of a joint global campaign by the Maritime Union of Australia (WA Branch) and the International Transport Workers Federation.
Gender Pay Gap broadening under Coalition
The Liberal Government has done nothing about the gender pay gap, now nationally at 17.1%. In my home state of Western Australia the wage gap between men and women is a massive 26.1%. Will the new Minister for Employment and Minister for Women Senator Michaelia Cash, also from Western Australia, commit to do something about the gender wage gap or will she continue to wage a war against vulnerable low income workers? "Penalty rates are an essential means of building fairness in our economy, keeping many of Australia's lowest paid workers from falling into deeper poverty, and should not be tampered with. It is vital that Australia's penalty rates system be maintained as an essential buffer against poverty, relied on by people who are battling to make ends meet. Those who rely on penalty rates to meet their household expenditure are far more likely to be single parents,women in receipt of a household income less that $30,000 and living on the edges of our cities or in regional Australia. You do not fix unemployment by penalising people in low-paid and insecure work" Dr John Falzon, CEO St Vincent de Paul Society Australia

Mortgage Delinquencies Increasing, Inflation at Zero, Rate Cut Imminent
The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) released their half-year results yesterday, and the picture was pretty bleak with regard to Australian property and mortgage stress. ANZ boss, Shayne Elliott, spoke of the deepening mortgage crisis that is sweeping across Australia. If we take a look at the data, it certainly looks like a trend to me. This is a chart of Australia Home Loan 90+ Day Delinquencies. It shows that over the past three or so years, delinquency rates have been stepping up in pretty much every state and territory. In Western Australia, it certainly looks like a very worrying trend. Thanks to a slowdown in mining, WA’s economy has been slowing over recent years. This has led to rising unemployment and mortgage stress. Using Western Australia as a guide, it doesn’t take much imagination to realise what would happen if unemployment rates increased in the eastern states. In the three months to April, ANZ home lending has fallen 3%. However, it’s not the cost of borrowing that is causing people to become delinquent. Looking at this chart, we can see that mortgage rates have been travelling along at historic lows. The RBA’s cash rate has been sitting at 1.5% since August 2016 — that’s more than two-and-a-half years! It’s not lack of cheap mortgages that is hurting Australians — it’s falling house prices. The RBA have recently raised “negative equity” as a growing concern. Negative equity is a big problem for both the borrower and the lender. If borrowers are forced to sell when they can’t repay their mortgage, they’ll remain in debt even after the sale. Lenders will probably be selling at a loss thanks to falling property prices. It’s not ideal for anybody (except for new buyers, of course). There’s lots of evidence suggesting that a sudden loss of income in households will lead to a huge increase in defaults. We can see in this chart, that unemployment edged back up to 5% in the March quarter. Is this just a blip, or is this a growing trend as well? When it comes to interest rates, many economists are predicting that the RBA will be forced to cut the interest rate to historic lows this coming Tuesday, 7 May 2019. Why do people think that they will they be forced to cut interest rates? Because Australian Bureau of Statistics data shows that inflation ground to a halt in the March quarter. The consumer price index (CPI) was 0.0%. Prices have not risen this year. Cameron Kusher, head of research at CoreLogic, said that persistently low inflation is what will force the RBA’s hand. The Biggest Problem with Rate Cuts Their only purpose is to encourage people to either get into more debt (because lending rates are low), or to save less of their income and spend more (because it’s not worthwhile keeping your money in the bank). But the RBA have no other tools at their disposal. The only thing they can come up with, is to encourage people to do the wrong thing — that is, get into more debt, or to spend more money. It’s a worrying trend. There is an alternative, however (apart from dismantling the entire financial system). The big investment bank Citi argues that the RBA would be better off embracing the unconventional policy of “helicopter money”. Basically, helicopter money is used by a central bank to drive up inflation and a stagnant economy's output. Where would this money come from? Citi suggest that the money could be raised by the RBA “buying” perpetual bonds from the Federal Government that would not need to be repaid and the proceeds would then be given to households. It’s not a new concept. It has been used before in Australia. In 2008 and 2009, the Federal Government made cash handouts totalling $20.8 billion which helped households through the Global Financial Crisis. What are your thoughts? Are we doomed to another interest rate cut? Are savers, like myself, being punished for not spending enough? Should we all become less frugal and spend all of our earnings and get into more debt, just so the government can say that the Australian economy is doing well? Are the RBA running out of options? Is helicopter money a viable option? Will people actually spend the helicopter money, or stick it in the bank like I did back in 2008? Are more flat-screen TVs really what the Australian public need?
