Foxy, don't you know what a Marxist is? Its people who love Groucho Marx. You do remember Groucho Marx don't you, he was ALMOST as funny as ttbn.

Hey, ttbn how about some big time examples of systemic over payment of employees!

If you want to know of businesses totally driven by the bottom line, and the pressure applied to "managers" to boost profits, try the big supermarket chains. At Woolworths this tip of the iceberg $300 million is not a bit of a mistake by lowly pay clerks, this was company policy. Why are Woolies fessing up now? They don't want any kind of impartial forensic investigation into something that could cost them billions. Where are Coles and the other big retailers on this.

A bloke took a job offsiding on a delivery truck for a large electrical and home goods retailer, well known to all. Supposedly the truck was operated by a "sub contractor". The blokes pay was $100/day cash in hand, hours 7am-7pm, being at call, lunch when you stop sometime. However they got to keep any old TV's they took away for customers, so the bloke in the store told him. I suppose they could put them on the 5 year interest free plan.

Dear Paul,

I love shopping at Big W. I get all of my
Birthday presents and Christmas presents for
the grand-kids there at a fraction of the cost
elsewhere - especially Lego sets and the Marvel
Superheroes series. Great stuff. Now I know why
things are cheaper there.

As for Marxists? Of course I know Groucho.
But I thought a Marxist was someone who got top
marks in everything. You learn something new on the
forum all the time (smile).

then again we have employee theft estimated to be about 2.7 billion a year. Of course those who hate successful companies would never mention it. Never heard abc reporting on it or any of the other lying liberal media.
