Have a read of this:
Has anyone noticed the wages of oil company execs “ratcheting” downward recently? How come the guy who actually does the work and produces the product is considered the problem? And, what exactly is the problem, frustration of bankers and stockbrokers that they aren’t getting even more for doing even less with zero risk because the taxpayer is forced to guaranty his profit?
I guess the bankers and oil company execs don’t want to join the race to the bottom, they just want to decide who gets there first.
It’s Aussie oil, they are Aussie companies totally dependent on Aussie labor to pay the taxes that make the whole thing possible … if the bankers and oil company execs feel like they aren’t making enough money and the workers are overpaid, let them get a job on a rig.
What’s Aussie for “let them eat cake?”
