Khan’s Supermarkets CEO Rashid Khan claims some people who are applying for jobs with his New South Wales company are only doing so to fulfil Centrelink obligations. Like other employers, he would like to see foreign workers be able to roll over their visas, while he claims he had to sell his supermarket in Nowra because he could not find a manager for it, despite being willing to pay $100,000 for one. Employment Minister Michaelia Cash says more job seekers need to be willing to move to areas where there are labour shortages; just 197 people took up JobSeeker assistance to relocate for work in 2020; the lowest figure in six years.
