All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Free Trade is only good for money makers. Ordinary working people's lives are not part of it - unless social welfare system is improving as required for mass unemployment. Skilled workers are needed for various industries. Once they are unemployed for a long time, the country they live in will have a problem in industrial future. By pursuing cheap labour, a country will get rid of its own skilled labour it needs for various kinds of employment. By reducing the number of job types, workforce will have more competition in fewer available professions, stress, and waste (in effort and in budget).

Government incomes come from working people. Government's responsibility is to create jobs as it tax them. Government should consider self-sufficient system as much as trading globally.

Protecting workforce doesn't mean to keep them in the same jobs that are not productive any longer. But it means governments must create opportunities that are productive and easy for the workforce to adapt. If there aren't jobs that pay, or paying efficiently, governments should support the people who are working. Exporting these jobs to another country doesn't only make working people unemployed, it also costs the country's income by imports and lose skilled labour now solely relying on social welfare.

Australian social welfare system is very good. If it has the services that keep new graduates training for their desired professions and the unemployed skilled labours to keep working to maintain their skills, it will be even better while they keep searching for jobs that don't exist. In this situation, one possible opportunity for them is volunteering, they can be placed in  various kinds of volunteer jobs in other countries if they want to go.
