Telecom’s $1.3 million a year CEO has announced a pay freeze and told workers who don’t like it to “talk to the human resources team about your options” – ie fuck off and quit. Course, he won’t notice a year’s pay freeze – real workers will though. The rich fuck’s already sacked a thousand workers, now he thinks he can dictate the terms of employment contracts. I’ve got news for you, arsehole. Employment contracts are bargains between worker and employer, not diktats from rich dickheads.
This, of course, is National’s vision of a brighter future. They want a world where employers tell you how much you’re paid and can refuse to negotiate with you and your union.
