When I came to Australia I ended up working in the building industry building houses and other buildings, working on building sites is hard work and usually is not a permanent job, because when one building is finished you don't know if your employer has been able to find another job to do, so your job is never secure, but if you want to work usually you will be able to find another job pretty soon. anyhow that is the way it was then and perhaps even know, if you are working in the building industry.

Working in the Australian building industry
As I have said in our previous post, Australia the land of opportunity, when I came to Australia my first job in Australia was in the building industry, because I ended up to work as a bricklayer’s labour, but I lost that first job for a couple of reasons. I believe that I lost the first job, because I didn’t know much English and at the same time I had no much experience in the sort of work we were doing, and for that reason I could not guess what they wanted me to do next. After that I had another job which ended very much the same way; but then one day suddenly a small Italian builder needed a labour and he knew that I could be available, so he came to fetch me and asked if I would be interested to work for him, and this is how I ended up to work in the building industry, I worked for this builder for about two years, but then he went on holiday to Italy for a long time, therefore he temporary closed down the business, but by then the Italian building community new about me, so, in a few days I had another job to go to, always in the building industry with another builder or contractors working as a bricklayer labour.
You see in those times there was a lot more work for people wanting to work, but at the same time we knew that we had to work hard because there was a lot of competition going on even in those days, so what could we say if we work hard for it, we would always find somebody that would give us work, because we earned our wage plus a bit more for the employer. This is how I understood about the ways of earning your living in this capitalist society, which is based on competition and you are paid with what you deliver. Now, we have to say that this capitalist way is very good, as long as the workers are not pushed beyond their physical capacity, because when they are asked to do more than what is possible for them to do, a lot of troubles and injustice are happening, so everything needs to be fine-tuned, so to speak. But let us compare those times with our times.   
-------------------------------------------------
Compare the old ways with the new
Here we would like to compare the opportunities that we had when we came in Australia in the sixties as legal migrant, to the opportunities of today that all these illegal migrants have, you see the difference here is that they arrive by boat and other illegal ways, for this reason they are starting the wrong way, so to speak; but anyhow, let us compare the old ways of migrating with the new ways.
So, let us compare the way that I and most other emigrants around the sixties, with what is happening today illegal emigration, so that we might be able to spot some of the reasons why things don’t seem to work as good as they used to work.
When I and the other emigrants that came to Australia wanted to come to Australia during the sixties we had to be screened before we could have a visa that would allow us to come to Australia and work here.
This screening was somehow strict, as they did not want anybody that could become sick easily, so we had to go through a medical check, and there was another even stricter check about being legally of good character, even if you had ever had trouble with the police, in fact they were so strict about this that if one had been somehow involved with the communist party, just by saying that you would vote for the communist you would not be allowed to come to Australia.
Now I hope that I have explained how strict they were then, but I believe that this was a good thing then, because as I have already said when I went to the unemployment office even though I did not speak much English they did everything possible to find us a job, and if they could not find us a job they would pay us the unemployment benefit.
Therefore I believe that just about anyone that has come to Australia and has seen Australia the same way that I have seen it, they would know that Australia is a great country to live in; and if there is somebody that does not like Australia, it must be because they have their own personal problems and they are home sick, or they are just unwilling to work hard and pay their way.
Today Australia does not seem to be as good as it was when I came to Australia, because before anyone that could see Australia the way I saw it would fall in love with the Australian ways of living; but we have to say that we are still very well off compared to other countries. So, we would like to conclude this post by saying that Australia could be still the land of opportunities, if the people that come here come with the intention of working hard as we have been working in the past, they should not come with the intention of ripping us off, just because they would like to have an easy life for themselves.
Anyhow this post is becoming too long, so see you next time with another post about building or properties; where we could be continuing telling you my life story and what I have done in Australia to earn a living. See you there.
