@redballoon Trump was too far, once you’re over the line what does a sideways shuffle matter?
I’ve yet to find an employer that considers mental health days to be legitimate. I usually lie and say I have a stomach issue. The only ones I have been honest with told me it was ‘extremely inconvenient’ and made it very clear they were deeply suspicious of my commitment to the job.
Report them to the ATO and fair work, not only is it illegal to make someone redundant and then readvertise, the deal was jobseeker had to go to all staff, not a selection. Then put the compensation payout into the new business.
@fightofyourlife agree, his people need to stop letting him make public statements when he’s manic.
@laura__palmer imagine thinking that losing twitter followers is an attack on your right to free speech. JK is one of the richest women in the world, her life will always be 100x easier than the average persons, but she needs fame and the whole world to hang onto her every word, and to be exempt from criticism.
@laura__palmer it’s turning into a general rant about how terrible everyone is these days- now they’re moving onto children.
@guest2 when I say ‘modern America’ I mean the current version of America that developed after European invasion. The version that could never have come into being without hundreds of years of slavery and slavery trading. The profits of slavery allowed the US to break from Britain, and they did so because they wanted to keep using slaves. Those profits were used to found universities (Georgetown was literally founded with funds from selling slaves) , develop manufacturing facilities, and build the infrastructure of a modern country. Those profits created the ‘founding fathers’ and their constitution. And then they continued to enrich the country through the cotton trade. It’s also ridiculous to say that slavery ended with the civil war. There are still thousands of overwhelmingly black men working for free today, making products for the wealthiest organisations in the world. And that’s even before we look at all the POC overseas performing slave labour for Americans.
@guest2 ‘Vic Health knew about the cases at Cedar Meats, but because the business donates large sums of money to the Labor Party’
@random dude it is interesting, basically both situations were met with a complete lack of communication and care for the people involved, they just veered in opposite directions- I suspect because of the bias that made it instinct to send police to deal with poor people, and to make sure that rich white people don’t miss their flights. Either way our emergency response planning needs work.
@guest2 you’re right that it’s not the speech that’s the trigger- it will be more about the several hundred years of state sanctioned murder of black people. A bit like the first one, but hopefully a second one could finish the job.
@fedup I’d love to hear what incredible trauma and adversity you’ve overcome in your life without ever deviating from your path of perfect health and productivity.
@michael you need to look up ‘freedom of speech’.
@michael so are Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong, but she’s very strongly opposed to immigration from those countries.
@guest2 there are a huge number of people in those towers who have lived through wars, even if they weren’t in the military.
@healthglo I’m sorry to hear about your family issues, but we cannot make social policy based on a sample size of your family. And it is entirely possible to provide people with targeted support for addiction and mental health and have a decent welfare system.
@guest2 because it’s unprofessional to have sex while on any job. And infection control is ‘stay away from the potentially infected people’, if you can’t learn that in about 10 minutes then you shouldn’t be in charge of guarding anything.
@guest2 pretty sure some of those roads and train lines built by slave labour helped with the manufacturing and agriculture industries.
@guest2 we all believe the victims- no matter how much ‘due process’ you demand, it’s ridiculous not to. The FBI have corroborated these stories backwards and forwards, there are witnesses, flight logs, Matching statements, even a photo to corroborate the stories. If you refuse to believe these victims then you’re basically saying that you will never believe any rape victim unless you were literally in the room at the time.
@michael whatever you think about Kanye, you can’t deny he’s an incredibly successful songwriter. I think that would put his IQ somewhere around 2x Trumps. And hey, he actually is a self-made billionaire! So far he seems far more electable than Trump.
@michael America was built on the profits of that cotton.
