ACT Government, the unions, and Mix 106.3 have put on a Family & Community Fun Day in Glebe Park from 12pm til 4pm today.
Jumping castle, face painting, family fashions on the field, make your own fascinator, BYO picnic or buy from the food and drink stalls (there will be a Lions charity sausage sizzle), plus the race on a bloody big screen.
So there y’all go. You may be denied the pleasure of going to a place you wouldn’t go to if they didn’t pay you to be there, but you can still enjoy Melbourne Cup Day with people whose company you actually enjoy. If you want to.

Me, I’m enjoying being able to take the day off work, even though I genuinely love my job. It’s nice to be able to sleep in on a weekday sometimes.

Thank god we don’t have to put up with this garbage any longer.

I hate public holidays too.

Thank god we don’t have to put up with this garbage any longer.

You’d better believe I got penalty rates today. Normal time for the holiday plus time and a half for actually being at work, making a grand total of double time and a half.

I wonder if workers are getting their penalty rates today, or if employers are hiding behind the expired AWAs again and denying fair pay to their workers?
