Mining industry recruiter Paul Linton, who runs one of Australia’s largest recruiting firms, says he is not sure if the mining industry is going to grow in Australia.
“We have been able to hire new staff, but not in a sustained manner and it has been very slow,” Mr Linton told The Australian Financial Review.
He said the industry has been hit by the low cost of living and a tightening of the labour market.
Mr Linton said the mining and resource industries are a large part of Australia and he does not want to see them lose their market share. AAP/ABC
