Op I feel you are being too harsh on your husband. From what you have described I feel your husband is doing some effort to find what suits him. If you have just moved to Australia you need to allow some time to let everything sink in. You must actually give yourself at least two years, only thn you should decide if this place is for you or not. It's a very unfair call if you think that a person who drives taxi is a bad example for his kids. I live in Australia from nearly two decades and the company my husband works for one of their cleaner his daughter is very soon going to graduate from the medical school and one of his colleagues who is a top level executive his son had learning disabilities so he couldn't finish his degree and recently he started driving truck, my husband's colleague is very happy about it that his son has finally found something he loves. I really think that no job is too small. Now Iam not going to bash you for this but after reading the title of your thread I feel that you are not fair in calling your husband stupid. He is ready to make an effort, You did not get him PR just for himself. You did the effort for your family. I feel you have panicked from the initial struggles of settling into a new place so badly want to go back. My appologies if my post has hurt you in any way.
