Yes, I find him to be laughable.

Why would a member whose electorate office is in Canberra need to pay his staff an electorate allowance? Isn’t that supposed to compensate for TRAVEL to and from the electorate?

Why try to find an answer to a question matter when you can just come to your conclusion, hey Masquara?

Here you go:

“Electorate and personal employees are also eligible for an additional allowance paid with salary in recognition of reasonable additional hours of work.”

A chief of staff paid at the APS5 level? Sheesh!

The allowances make the difference. But be prepared for long days and even longer nights. No workplace “flexibility” here.

Makes my construction job on similar money, 8 hour day and a nine day fortnight look very sweet. My union negotiated those benefits for me.
Funny how a Labor MP can run a sweat shop as purported by 54-11.
I hope he puts in a better effort when he fights for MY workplace rights in Parliament than he (alledgedly) provides for his own staff.

Madam Cholet said :

‘A commencing salary between $67 956 and $76 548 will be paid, plus allowances up to $25 060 depending on skills and experience.’

What sort of skills gain an increase in allowances?

Hi Madam Cholet, the ‘skills and experience’ refers to the entire salary package including allowances (poorly punctuated, I’m sorry). The allowance is the Electorate Staff Allowance and more information on it is available here: http://maps.finance.gov.au/enterprise_agreement/Guidelines/ESA.html Happy to discuss the job further if you’re interested – 6247 4396.

Why would a member whose electorate office is in Canberra need to pay his staff an electorate allowance? Isn’t that supposed to compensate for TRAVEL to and from the electorate? Presumably this unfortunate junior officer (I mean, Chief Of Staff) will only qualify for the lowest rank of EA – and thereby still be paid as an APS5 pretty much?

That would be one’s ability to clear the desk.

He’s looking for a new Louise? As a pollie he would make a great comedian!

No, I don’t want to work for any politician, thank you for asking. Besides, if you read the link, you have to be called Louise.

Not sure I could keep up with the required reading.
