Hi Belly

not making excuses for anyone. Woolworths should pay up. Just adding some balance.

truth is that honesty and truth is decreasing in our society from all.

A common argument from the far right extreme is to point to some other evil, and assume that justifies the evil they condone. Like some kind of counterbalance, we have it here from the hypocritical cult follower, wage theft is negated by unsubstantiated claims of employee theft. The Christian Bible states; "You shall not steal", but for the fanatical extreme element he applies a tit for tat interpretation, "You steal from me I steal from you", a bit like an eye for an eye. Right runner!

you really are a joke Paul. I thought you might of been one of those spitting on workers in Melbourne. Was it only your mates who got charged for their disgusting behaviour.

btw the posts on celebrating Cook's landing does exactly what you accuse me of. Then again I would not expect someone holding such hateful ideology to have any idea of truth.

Hi Paul1405,
Not only should employees get the money owed to them by Woolies,
Every single Woolies employee who paid money into the Shop, Distributive and Allied Union;
Should sue THEM for every single dollar paid as well.
If a union can't even check that employees pay is correct they don't deserve one dollar.
This clearly proves unions are self serving and not working in an employees best interests.

AC, read my post about union access to the "wage book" of employers. The right of the union to scrutinise wage payments was limited by Fair Work some years back at the behest of employers. I wonder why!

"This clearly proves unions are self serving and not working in an employees best interests."

BTW, in my union days the SDA, although a large union, was seen as gutless wonders by many.

'Cult Follower', Smart Company, a mouth piece for employers, no evidence, no accounts of prosecutions, just fictitious crap some Yank thought up while sitting on the you know what. Provide evidence of the claimed $2.7 billion? I'll agree the big supermarkets might lose the occasional bag of 'Minties', or the odd stale cream bun to a hungry employee, can't deny that, but $2.7 billion worth, pull the other leg.

First to the spam generator, your business if it needs such low acts is not worth dealing with
Runner give it a miss please
My recent thread about why newcomers do not stay should relook at posters like you
Can it be this site largely, has become home for one extreme side of politics
It sure looks like it
Does that extremism driven group, require only their thoughts be given air
Is it needed that free speech, from views other than yours/theirs be muffled
A fair day's pay for a fair day's work, surely not evil?
Hawke Keating brought about a stalling of wage increases, to stabilize and build our economy
Much true great reform followed, we stand the great country we are because they opened up our banks and country to world trade
I have, time and again, sat with bosses found to have under paid their workers, and both deliberately and by mistake
Near every time, working out [small businesses do not have cash to spare] a way to repay it and trade on
However have seen the deliberate strip the business and close the doors only to open debt free under another name the next week
Fairness and honesty is not too much for either side to ask for
