Clean Start, Or, How the Howard Government is Fucking People Over. Again.

From Bruce's Rave and Rant:

Cleaners in Canberra have been doing battle with DB Reef, the local arm of
German Banking giant Deutsche Bank. In the face of the new Federal Industrial
Relations Laws (aka "No-Choices") , Deutsche Bank, through the local DB Reef,
has refused to guarantee equitable working conditions and pay.

Yet again, thanks to big business and the Howard Government, more
Australian workers have the sword of Damocles hanging above their head; promises
of affluence for the aspirational distracting people from just how insecure the
wellbeing of Australians is.

Not everyone is fooled of course, and you can join in with the Canberra
Cleaners and the LHMU and sending a message to Deutsche Bank. All you have to do is click here and follow the instructions. For a bit more background, check the
