El Presidente up before committee today – Where’s the 10c?

Better hold the horses, the dodgy cartel like BSC’s El Presidente, Patrick Lee-Lo is up before the Transport & Industrial Relations Committee today, along with fellow junket traveller Marja Verkerk.


While Paddy may try to impress the committee saying (his employer ToTal Property Services) are paying cleaners above the minimum wage of $13.75, under his BSC El Presidente hat, he’s endorsing BSC members paying members a whopping 10c more thanks to a multi employer collective agreement/MECA of $13.85. Oh that’s right, these SFWU cleaners are complaining about low wages and FairnessAtWork. 

These SFWU vulnerable workers should be very thankful for the extra 10c thanks to the good work of the BSC – the very same BSC tucking its members for $20k a year in membership fees. And ToTal Property Services knows all about that.

But back to the Committee hearing.

No doubt Paddy will be all dapper in a suit with his moustache nicely waxed. It may make MPs on the Committee wonder how he achieves such a fine specimen of a moustache. It may make the women members of the Committee – Labour’s Darien Fenton and Sue Moroney and Green Taliban Denise Roche all swoon on his every word.

It may even make younger members of the Committee, young Simon O’Connor and Committee Chair David Bennett wonder how to grow and shape such a moustache. Maybe it will make serial rooter and Silent T supporter Iain Lees-Galloway ponder if this would help him even more with the ladies, especially shy stenographers.

I thought I’d help them out.
