Greater flexibility might bring more productivity, but it comes at a cost | Greg Jericho 9 Jul 2:00pm Greater flexibility might bring more productivity, but it comes at a cost | Greg Jericho
Australia with its largely decentralised bargaining system has gone too far down the ‘flexibility’ path New research from the OECD has delivered a damning assessment of the drive for more flexibility in our industrial relations system. It found that such highly flexible systems with little centralised bargaining across sectors and industries delivers lower employment, higher unemployment, and greater wage inequality. At the moment such is the desire to find wage growth improving that almost any signs will be taken as evidence of good news ahead. One of these signs is that the latest annual wage increase for enterprise bargaining agreements made in the March quarter this year was 2.7% – up from 2.5% in December last year and the record low of 2.2% in September.

The last (plastic) straw: travel and its environmental responsibilities 4 Jul 1:30am The last (plastic) straw: travel and its environmental responsibilities
Some airlines, hotels and tour operators are now addressing the issue of plastics pollution but activists believe the solution requires everyone to take a stand For decades the image of a brightly coloured plastic straw in a cocktail against a backdrop of sea and sunset signalled one thing – carefree holidays. But 2018 is the year the travel industry will say adios not just to plastic straws but all single-use plastic. Today, those little plastic tubes are a symbol not of fun times but of the catastrophic damage our throw-away culture is doing to the planet. Photographs of straws littering the seabed and beaches are on every news site and eco-conscious social media account – along with

In desirable Southwold, locals rise up against blight of empty holiday homes 24 Jun 5:00am In desirable Southwold, locals rise up against blight of empty holiday homes
Property investors accused of squeezing the life out of picturesque Suffolk resort and distorting economy “We don’t wish to be sounding nimby, or that we’re not keeping up with the times,” worries Will Windell, a Southwold councillor, “but you need to see the effect that this stuff has in a real way on a small community.” The stuff, for the full-time residents of Suffolk’s picturesque coastal town, is the news that second-home owners in the area are exploiting a legal loophole to dodge council tax. “We’re subsidising all the local services,” says Windell, exasperated, in an impromptu meeting conducted over a dining table. “We pay for the refuse collection and the roads; these guys don’t, and it’s distorting the local economy.” Earlier this month David Beavan, a retired farmer and Liberal Democrat candidate in the upcoming Southwold and Reydon byelection for the district council, researched Southwold’s most desirable streets – rows of grand townhouses and charming cottages closest to the beach – and discovered that 260 properties were registered as small businesses, intended as holiday lets for a minimum of 140 days per year and without any obligation to fulfil that requirement or to then pay any council tax. According to his follow-up survey, around 80% of those houses stood empty most of the time.

Good luck with telling voters they are better off than a few years ago | Greg Jericho 16 Jun 5:58pm Good luck with telling voters they are better off than a few years ago | Greg Jericho
Even if wage growth does improve, it will probably go up by less than expected The news was not good this week for those hoping for an end to the weak wages growth – weakening employment figures suggest little chance of wages growth improving, and a speech by the head of the Reserve Bank suggests the problem is unlikely to be improved soon. Last year was certainly a good one for jobs. After a terrible 2016, which saw full-time employment go backwards, 2017 boomed – the largest increase in the percentage of adults working full-time in a calendar year observed since the bureau of statistics started recording labour force figures on a monthly basis in 1978.

Snacks, slouching, stagnant wages: the office is making us miserable 15 Jun 7:00am Snacks, slouching, stagnant wages: the office is making us miserable
Research has found we’re consuming 1,300 calories in office snacks per week. But it’s not just the treats that are bad for us A study about US workplaces, released this week, contained some unappetising news: every time you tuck in the cake Janice for HR baked at home, or you help yourself to the buffet on bagel Fridays, you are in fact consuming calories. Hang on a second? Office snacks contain calories? Who would have thought? Thanks, science! This pioneering discovery that food we eat at work is not calorie-free is delivered unto us by researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A study of 5,222 employees across the US, found that people obtain nearly 1,300 calories per week from foods and beverages they get at the office. Mostly these are empty, unhealthy calories.
