Yikes this is too good to be true.
A person using the amazingly accurate epithet of 'Poor old Rafe' writes about part-time employment and strikes and productivity.
Only one problem he is wrong on both counts.
The ABS released their labour force statistics yesterday. Now yes over the month he is right but ( remember there is a lot of noise in monthly figures) why over the year to November has part-time employment fallen but full-time employment risen?
On Industrial disputes and Productivity I will outsource this to Grog's Gamut again.
Notice the difference between the evidence and the assertion.
The link is in the national accounts. He asserts something and has no idea of the primary source. wow!
This person is living in a parallel universe
