DH accepts Individual Contract thru gritted teeth

With Centrelink's big stick behind her making sure she accepts whatever conditions the Howard Govts business cronies care to impose, DH has accepted an individual contract at $30 per hour, the same rate she was paid about 5 years ago for similar work.

How much has the cost of living gone up in the past 5 years???. Of course, at an hourly rate, she will be paying her own super out of that, plus no sick pay, no holiday pay, no rights.

What gets on her nerves is the unholy alliance of Howard Costello and Hamilton, yes, that's Clive Hamilton, telling us we've never had it so good!
OTOH, she will be working in an area co-ordinating the supply of housing to people with disabilities so she is quite excited at the prospect of doing something that she values.

But isn't it disgusting the way people who work in the public sector get screwed because they are prepared to sacrifice wages for the common good?
Thank goodness DH waived her TEIS with her last job as it was part-time and and at a much lower rate (now it can be told, DH was working for DOH, so now you know why she never has a go at them anymore. They were SO nice!) so she will not be getting an increase in rent for the next 3 months.

This is her big chance to make a killing!!!

Let's see:
