  1. ieuan 1

    Reading about how little they are paid is eye opening and I totally support equal pay for doing the same job but I do have one question.

    If the job is so poorly paid why do they do it?

  2. i totally agree with ieuan, why do they do it?

    • Daveo 2.1

      Because they enjoy the job, but want to be treated with some basic dignity and respect. Here’s a question – why would you put your company’s name in jeopardy by siding with Air New Zealand against these workers?

      • The Baron 2.1.1

        Daveo – I think you just got sucked into someone who only wanted to advertise their “Computer Store”.

        Admins?

        • lprent 2.1.1.1

          It was trapped in spam. I let it through because it didn’t fail my usual spam tests – it was on topic, didn’t have links in the body, and it is something that people would respond to, etc.

          Either they’re writing the bots smarter or it was a person doing it. I’ll keep an eye out to see if I get more of the same type.
