Fighting for $1.62 an hour as $10m missile vanishes in a flash

I’d say you have a big problem if you let the ‘boys’ play with expensive fireworks while the workers that feed them have to fight for an extra NZ$1.62 an hour. —A NY psychologist

Catering workers at the New Zealand Air Force Ohakea “defence” base near Palmerston North are reportedly planning to strike over wages on April’s Fools day.

Their Service and Food Workers Union (SFWU) spokesperson said the workers could not reach an agreement with Compass Group PLC, their employer, despite six months of negotiations.

“The strike action followed a 24-hour work stoppage on Monday,” a report quoted the union representative as saying.

The strike action comes amid an expensive and entirely unnecessary  “missile test” by NZ military which cost their taxpayer an estimated NZ$10 million.

A NZ Army Warrant Officer Class One receives about NZ$75,000 base salary plus lots of allowances and extras, whereas the catering workers are expected to live on less than NZ$22,000 for comparable work. http://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/49761/air-force-catering-staff-strike-over-wages

This is totally sick and unfair!

Coming in the next few weeks …

How do we know that PM John Key is lying when he says: “As far as I am concerned we are not changing our anti-nuclear legislation.”

      Using that analogy, you must believe that Major Gen. John Key deserves his loot in country where nearly half the kids haven’t enough to eat!!!
