Frontline Housing NSW staff pay cut again

While job hunting on SEEK about a week ago, DH noticed that Housing NSW was advertising again for "strong-minded" staff, i.e. counter staff.

But their already miserable hourly rate has been cut since February from $23 to $20!

DH commented on this with dismay back then under the heading:

Wanted by D'oH: Strong minded social workers prepared to work for $23ph.

It's a sad commentary on how wages are being driven down as unemployment goes up. Pity the working class, with Centrelink whipping them from behind to force them to accept whatever employers feel like dishing out, and with a broken union movement and a toothless Labor party.

This is just a foot in the door. Once in, make use of their allowance for furthering your education. I assume this still exists.
