Seems like good, justifiable value when u put it like that ... especially since most of the $$$ is going back into American companies;-)

Oh nonsense, if it's an AWA, from what I've understood from the $60 million plus (they won't tell us) of taxpayer's money they've spent on ads trying to convince us that AWAs are a good idea ... you Dalai can sit down with your employer, and reach a nice agreement whereby you'll work an extra Saturday a month if you can have thereafter have sex with a first-year student (or two second-years), without any accusations of AM.

Remember, employers are just BUSTING to pay us more, but they can't, poor petals, because of nasty brutish threatening swearing union bosses*.

Thanks for the suggestion BigMike, but I don't work in education... I was just answering Ed's question of what an AM is!

...that money goes towards my salary... :-) I've worked on Work Whatevers and Superannuation fed gov
ads so far this year. I'm waiting for the election year flood! In fact CRUX is fairly heavily subsidized from
my 'real job' income creating ads for this crock of shit government.

BOYCOTT CRUX!!

Although it is nice to know that ONE good thing has come out of the $60 million plus of our money the Government has spent on trying to convince us we really want increased job insecurity.

Cool, i just signed up for the next Fed Government job. This time i'm selling the glamour and glory of
joining the defense forces. See the world, meet interesting people, kill them - that sort of thing.

i fail to understand why the US and Australia are finding it difficult to recruit.....

perhaps you could aim it at climbers. join the army and get posted to afghanistan, when you get rec leave you can climb the hindu kush or smuggle yourself over the border and hitup the karakoram.

do you get to put in the ad that if you have a criminal record and have always wanted to join the defence forces, we've changes the laws so that (as long as it isnt murder or pedophilia) you can now come and join us. or if you are overweight and unfit then we've changes the laws there too so you're a good as in.

Surely the army would WANT to recruit murderers?

What better thing could you list under "previous work experience"?

My thoughts entirely. Another example of massive hypocrisy at work. Our soldiers, pilots, captains are
'heros' for killing people en-mass, but we consider murder to be the #1 worst crime in our legal system.
Go figure. I have nothing against the miltary as a defense concept (ie without it we'd probably be a
japanse colony) but they should only really be used for extreme problems. Back in the 'hey-days' of
my youth in the 1990s our Aussie miltary seemd to just help people out in trouble (ie floods, fires ect)
, they didn't go around invading countries. (or maybe i was ignorant of their true work back then?). It's
an interesting one. I do believe that the military can and does produce fine outstanding citizens from
people who may have been about to stray. I good kick up the backside can do wonders for the
motivation to get off the couch, kick the bong habit and learn a trade.

Casinos on the other hand. I really really fail to see any positive community produced from them.

There was a bit of Mogadishu action if memory serves...another great sectarian schemozzle but of course without oil, the international community lost interest pretty quickly.

TAXES! Same like the gasper industry...

Of course it's like putting 16kg of soy protein into a cow to get one kg of beef out... law of diminishing returns. The tax earned on gambling probably doesn't offset the destruction it causes to individuals in the community, and tax on ciggies is poor compensation for all that heart and cancer surgery.

But the money is upfront.

100 Australian soldiers died in iraq this month (but they were all murderers, so its ok)
