I felt the same about Hayne and I couldn't even believe it
It would mean that we had finally broken our f**ken 34 year drought!!I reckon it could tear the guts out of the game. I mean, just say Parramatta was in, say, sixth spot with six or seven weeks of the premiership to go, and they suddenly buy 3 quality players at the end of July. They go on a run and win the grand final with these three quality 'ring ins'. What would it mean?
In America there is no binding 'contract' that we have here when we employ people. There they can be/are 'employees at will' (of the employer) where they can be terminated at any time without consequences to the employer. And that min wage you quoted is probably the Federally mandated MW which most states do not follow. Wages can be as low as around $3/hr for tipped employees to $6/hr in hospitality business which has been the same for about 20 years. No wonder there are so many billionaires in US when they treat employees as quasi slaves.Also, 'Merica don't have employees high (min wage $7.25/h !) on their give a shit list.
