Do Australians get sour about the fact that British and Irish immigrants are the highest earners in Australia?

The Irish and British are the wealthiest people in Australia, earning double what native-born Australians do. Skilled permanent migrants coming from Ireland earn $82,865 per year and those from the United Kingdom earn around $70,367. The average Aussie-born person makes $39,411 per annum. 

The average wage in the UK is $58,145 and only $49,412 in Oz, but British and Irish immigrants can expect to make much more than that in Australia. 

There were times when the Brits and Irish were lowly serfs upon arrival in Australia, being driven like slaves by their Australian landlords. How have the tables turned so much?

Update:

Dildo: Full-time earnings are not average earnings

Update 2:

Old Timer: Highly skilled people are a dime a dozen in the UK and Ireland. They lose nothing.

Update 3:

Dildo: LOL stop embarrassing yourself!

    Probably because (in the event that this is fact) those coming in from outside Australia can only do so on a work visa, meaning they automatically are coming in to fill better jobs; while those born in Australia include all part time and low paid options.

    It would be helpful if you could post where you got these statistics, I don't believe you should post these type of post without evidence, even if you're right.

    No because they work for what they have they are achievers so good luck to them .

    I don't know why these statistics are so important to you, no one here could care less, the point being you have to be highly skilled to immigrate here so you're going to earn good money, 82k is not a big deal anyway, there are plenty of Australians who earn more than that.

    you could look at it another way, we are stealing the very best from Ireland and the UK so it only means your country is left with the riff raff. sort of reverse to what it was in you sent your convicts here wouldn't you say.

    You can quote all the stats you want genius but the truth is you are not as smart as you think. We see your stupid posts on a daily basis and all it does is show us how indeed ignorant you actually are.

    You know that we depend on fresh blood from Britain right. You understand that if they stay here there kids become Aussies.
