Casualisation : Business Model or a Cancer?

Wednesday, 15 December 2021 - 8:30am to 9:00am
NTEU Casuals Network Rally

Today we continue the discussion around the rise of casualization which is destroying Australian society.

We go to a NTEU rally that was held outside a mansion bought by Melbourne University for their Vice Chancellor to live in at the cost of $7.1 million dollars while the University persists in paying academics at casual rates on insecure contracts with the depressing move to cut the rates of pay of phd graduates and pay outs for wage theft. An interesting element at the rally was the inclusion of speakers from the blue collar union the United Workers Union fresh from a victory at Toll kmart Warehouses who were facing the same issues of insecure work and below inflation wage increases and conditions cuts - a situation which in real terms equals a pay cut at the same time that the employers have received win fall profits coming out of the pandemic.
