Skilled Workers Incentive Scheme, 644

The Kodiak Republic is suffering from a crisis level shortage of Teachers. This proposal is aimed at addressing that shortage rapidly while simultaneously improving the Republic’s extremely low immigration levels by providing subsidised immigration costs of immigration for those who fulfil jobs that we are in dire shortage of. This will provide an influx of needed jobs without impacting on the jobs of working Kodiakers. Teaching in particular will help our own local workforce to train into needed job sectors faster.

PASSED 07 September 2022, 17 Aye, 1 Nay, 1 Abstain.
AMENDED 28 August 2023 by the Defense and Immigration Expenditures Act, 654.
