The Morrison Govt’s failed visa privatisation bid cost us $92m with $40m going to Boston Consulting. Once again the only winners from privatisation are consultants & big business And after looking into this debacle, ANAO decided to cut their own consultants and saved $2m https://t.co/kT8HChhBcJ
Total employed headcount at CSIRO has reduced by 579 (~10%) in the past 12 months. That’s a 579 reduction in secure jobs. Some work has been engaged back through labour hire. We’re calling it out. Every secure job at CSIRO is important. https://t.co/VOotkgXG6c

Our new report debunks the knee-jerk assumptions behind recent calls to freeze public sector wages: "ethically questionable and economically destructive." With Australia on verge of deflation, austerity like this could tip us into depression: https://t.co/03DpHeSfIV.
At a time when so many of our public sector workers are at the front-line of responding to Covid-19, freezing public sector wages is ethically wrong and economically damaging. @JimboStanford and I lay out the facts in new report. #auspol #ausecon @ppe @SydneyUni_Media @Usyd_ssps https://t.co/LvuvKqGqx7
