Italian immigration to Australia?

Australia needs Italian immigrants due to the lack of labor, particularly in the agricultural industry. The Australians came to respect the Italian migrants as they were hard workers and could cope with working in Australia's hot climate. They also came to realize the positive effect their arrival in Australia was doing for our economy. the majority of Italian migrants came to Australia after world war II. Living conditions in Italy were poor for most. Australia soon became a popular option for Italians as the US now had restrictions on allowing Italian immigrants into the country. These restrictions tightened till they allowed virtually no Italian immigrants into the country, in contrast to the 2 million that were allowed in before the war. As a result of this, many Italians were redirected to Australia. Only encouraged by the news of the high living conditions and mountains of opportunities available in this young country. Although many of these rumors were exaggerated, living conditions in Australia were undoubtedly better than those in Italy, and the majority of migrants did not regret their arrival in Australia. Most of who stayed in Australia and eventually acquired land. Italian migrants played a big part in the growth of Australia. They provided us with sorely need labor in the post war period and gained a new respect from the Australian public. This resulted in many migrants being naturalized, and continuing to build a future in Australia.

The statement is false. People do like to live in Australia, which is rated very highly on the world "liveability" scale. Some people may find Australia's extremes of weather difficult to handle. Others may feel it is too remote from the rest of the world. But it is evident that many people like to, and want to, live in Australia, judging by the high numbers of immigrants that come to the country.
