Guess what my son caught one of the staff at his local newstart grilling shop aka Sureway doing? On-line shopping.....comforting to know how hard they work.
They'll be working a lot less harder if the new online self-reporting trial becomes the norm & replaces face to face contact appointments. It's all part of the push to reduce the cost to the provider by forcing unemployed workers to do their work. It begs the question "what are the job service providers actually doing to earn their tax payer funding?"
Good question.......much the same, filling in stats to Centrelink, on-line shopping and drinking coffee.
I call this bullying. Would you? This is hilarious if you've got the time to read it- My conversation with Status: Me- 'Hi, I have an appointment with you tomorrow that I can't attend because I'm working.' Them-'you can't cancel because we will cut you off from centrelink' Me-'dont be ridiculous, surely your not asking me to ditch work for an appointment with you, an unemployment agency. Do you not see the irony there?' Them- 'well you missed last Mondays appointment, it's imperative you attend this one or you will be cut off'. Me-' No, I will not attend. I did NOT miss last Mondays appointment. I was there on time but you sent me away saying it was cancelled, and we booked another for the next Monday' . Them- oh yes I see Mondays appointment there, but you must attend tomorrow's appointment too. Or send in the missing payslip' Me- 'I have told you I will send the missing payslip when it comes. I have written to my employer and they have not responded yet. I am not going to hound them until a decent amount of time has passed' Apparently I will still be cut off.
