…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
In Jharkhand state in eastern India a system was installed to track the daily attendance of 14,000 civil servants. They have to log in and out by scanning a fingerprint or iris. The data is published live online.
What a fantastic idea! Now how to make them work while they are physically present?
Our public servants, beside running various personal enrichment schemes, sending mass e-mails praising Labor, Greens and Australian Broadcasting Commissariat, are the world’s top computer games players. Iris scans will not be enough.
And the other taxpayer-fleecing parasites at that socialist propaganda outlet (from Tim Blair):
“ABC management is bracing for a possible strike before Christmas as the journalists’ union says it is not ruling out industrial action over forced redundancies.
As staff revolt over up to 300 forced redundancies and the digital direction taken by ABC management, Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance national secretary Christopher Warren said strikes were an option.
“There’s nothing planned or intended but we’re not ruling out industrial action,” he said.
Please, go right ahead. One small problem: many of the ABC’s high-profile personalities are already on holidays. And how would it be possible to tell if Radio National’s notoriously work-shy yoga chickens were on strike or just putting in their usual effort?
ABC staff have compared the redundancy process to Hollywood movie The Hunger Games, in which contestants participate in a brutal fight to the death until only one remains …
Outgoing 7.30 host Quentin Dempster said these methods were not the right way to downsize the ABC.
“Any survivors of hunger games will be resentful and demotivated,” he said.
Considering Dempster’s previous workload, he might not be the best person to speak to about strikes. He basically got paid $300,000 per year to be on one.”
