Hi AC,

I remember in my latter days of school, doing a couple of nights a week as a shelf stacker at a local supermarket (they closed at 5.30pm in them days), 3 mates and me doing 4 hours. We were "supervised" by a pimply faced elderly Assistant Store Manager, probely aged about 20, with a young check-out-chick, who stayed back unofficially. They spent most the night in the back office with the door closed. Much laughter and giggling, along with a bit of grunting from time to time (the walls were thin) emanated from the office throughout the night. We had to join the union, at 50c week. Me thinks the ASM was making with his own union.

Well, the mate Dave the Dasher, being an enterprising young chap was not adverse to doing a bit of stock adjustment himself in between stacking the 'Tiny Taters' and 'Baby Beets' in the kiddies aisle, reckons he got the sack for that mistake, but me thinks it was due to his unauthorised stock adjustment activities that got him the bullet!

Here’s one the anti-Woolworths ranters won’t object to given their extreme Left/Marxist politics.

We taxpayers have forked out $30 million so that Woolworths can install ‘energy-efficient’ lighting and refrigeration in supermarkets. This and the $1 billion that Morrison has just handed over to private companies for more experiments with costly, unreliable energy is clear evidence that the gap between the ALP and the NLP is narrowing fast.

We are steadily inching towards a China-style one party dictatorship.

Hey ttbn,

"We taxpayers have forked out $30 million so that Woolworths can install ‘energy-efficient’ lighting and refrigeration in supermarkets.

I think they more or less have to as part of previously agreed to 'international commitments'.

These international commitments include 'targets';
So both side of politics inevitably has to jump through the same hoops to meet them.
It doesn't matter which side we choose all roads lead to Rome.
I see it as international democracy being imposed upon nation states.

Do we need evidence of systemic wage theft in Australia, its rife!

The American fat cat franchise mob 'Subway' have been caught out ripping off workers.

167 current and former 'Subway' employees were found to have been underpaid following investigations into 22 Subway franchisees in NSW, Queensland and Victoria.

The Fair Work Ombudsman found 18 of 22, that's over 89%, of 'Subway' franchisees were breaching workplace laws by failing to pay minimum wages, casual loadings, holiday and overtime rates, or not keeping proper employment records or issuing proper payslips.

"A franchisee who ran two Subway outlets in Sydney was fined $65,438 after underpaying one Chinese worker more than $16,000, while inspectors issued seven compliance notices, nine formal cautions and nine on-the-spot fines for record keeping and payslip breaches."

This criminal behaviour might go down well in Alabama USA, but its not what Australians will tolerate. Jail sentences are necessary if we are going to stop rampant theft of wages from some of the lowest paid workers in the country!

Multiculturalism + Mass Immigration = Wage Theft. It's that simple.

Someone should do a freedom of information request and find out ALL the companies caught stealing from employees and then release the whole list to the public.
