    Since you don't like unions, have you asked your employer if you can negotiate an individual contract with them with negotiated rates of pay?

    Some university are not able to due to legal restrictions (thx to government) so scope for negotiation is limited...and its bad as I am pretty sure I would get more money if not for that.

    Re negotiating whatever is possible - I do it all the time. More often successfully rather than unsuccessfully. My experiences discussing workplace arrangements are mostly positive.

    Adani mine: work on project could start in just three weeks

    Adani could start building its controversial coalmine in just three weeks, after besieged Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk declared she’d had a “gutful” of delays in her own government’s approvals of the project.

    Ms Palaszczuk today said there had been a “breakthrough” in the impasse over Adani, declaring in Cairns that the deadline for a decision on Adani’s management plan for the endangered black-throated finch was May 31, while the decision on the company’s groundwater strategy would occur on June 13.

    If both plans are signed off on by Queensland government officials, the company expects it will be able to break ground on the proposed Carmichael coal mine in central Queensland in as few as three weeks.

    After months of refusing to intervene, Ms Palaszczuk on Wednesday declared she was “fed up” with her own government’s processes, and said the federal election result in Queensland had been a “wake-up call” on Adani. Federal Labor was thumped in the state at the weekend poll, losing two seats and suffering a plunge in its primary vote.

    The result sparked an internal revolt from state Labor MPs, particularly those based in jobs-starved regional Queensland, who said their voters were demanding certainty on Adani.

    Legal battle possible in Chisholm

    Labor and the Greens are considering whether or not to join legal action being pursued by independent Kooyong candidate Oliver Yates, in a case that could have implications for the Liberals’ narrow win in the Victorian seat of Chisholm.

    Liberal Gladys Liu is 1,386 votes ahead in the eastern Melbourne seat, but her Labor counterpart Jennifer Yang is yet to concede defeat.

    Mr Yates has threatened to take the Liberal Party to the Court of Disputed Returns over Chinese language signs, designed to resemble purple and white Australian Electoral Commission material, which told Chinese voters “the correct voting method” was to put a “1” next to the Liberal candidate and number the rest of the boxes from lowest to highest.

    The math on Adani Carmichael coal mine doesn-t add up makes for an interesting read. The mine is currently one sixth of the original proposal but is seems David Fickling still reckons the maths is all wrong.

    I'm guessing Annastacia Palaszczuk has also had a 'gutful' of News Corp putting her in 'crosshairs'.

    If Adani does its dough, then Adani does its dough. As the article says: Adani has promised to fund the project from its own balance sheet.

    I do think that, if it happens, they should offer a Bob Brown scholarship, since, without the help of Bob and his merry band of fossil powered greenies, the project might never have happened.

    Unfortunately, it's not only Adani that will lose money:
    The Queensland Government is offering major financial subsidies to Adani’s coal project, including a secret deal on royalties worth hundreds of millions and a free access road worth $100 million, shows a new report from The Australia Institute. The report estimates the royalty deal will lend Adani between $215 million to $385 million, on terms the Government is still keeping entirely secret.

    Time will tell I guess let’s reconvene back here for the 2022 election. Did you read the note attached to the section you quoted? It reads: -

    To some extent we can leave debt costs aside if Adani does self-fund. Even then, though, the numbers fail to stack up: On the extremely generous assumption that Adani can fund it with cash alone and bear no finance costs, net operating profit after tax would still amount to $70 million – a 3.7% return on $1.9 billion of invested capital. Any return below about 8% represents economic losses; Adani could make twice as much buying Indian 10-year government bonds.

    Yep, I've seen this and did discuss with my Chinese friends.

    Apart from the fact that Chinese community (hardworking people who care more about taxes than climate change) is more likely to support Liberal Party agenda, some are feeling quite annoyed that by implying that they are so easy to ''fool'' they are being taken for ''stupids'' who can not tell what is going on and consequently do not vote the way they would otherwise.

    Is that a good thing?

    I wonder if the miss-direction on how to vote is something that comes with compulsory voting. I know it’s boring when I constantly compare everything with the UK, but I have to say I’m shocked at the bare faced lies told by all sides in this campaign. Then again now I stop to think about it Heres-how-spectacularly-wrong-the-brexit-bus-350million-lie-was maybe it’s nothing to do with the UK/compulsory voting.
