Employment boom

By johnboy - 4 October 2006 5

The ABC has a story on the drum tight labor market in this town in the lead up to Christmas.

The Chamber of Commerce is encouraging business to try and hang onto staff as there aren’t too many replacements out there, so now’s a good time to ask for a raise or a regular day off.

What’s Your opinion?

When they start hiring old people and other “unattractive” staff, I’ll believe it. And yes, the cycle will go round, like it always does, and THEN we can have another look at the labour laws.

Make hay while the sun shines people, this is part of a larger cycle, and won’t last forever.

Quote “It shows the IT and government sectors continue to be the strongest employment sectors.”

Or better still ask for paid overtime (with penalty rates if you can get them).
