Female Quotas for Queensland Police – References

#QPS #AUSPol #GenderQuotas

Prompted by a question at a recent Jordan Peterson lecture I look at the 50% female police recruitment quota for QPS. Reading through the Police Union magazine we find evidence of gender-based discrimination in other roles and services. We need to let our politicians know that this behaviour is not acceptable in “Fair Go” Australia.

#GenderPayGap #Sport #Wamen

I look at a recent article from SBS news about our Sporting CEOs supporting the”Pathway to Pay Equality” report from Male Champions of Change. I felt like I was reading some bad fan fiction based on Atlas Shrugged.

NRL Anthem Silence – References

#NRL #IndigenousAllStars #NationalAnthem

I look at the NRL Anthem Silence protest, where several Indigenous All Stars protested the Australian National Anthem and calls by Mal Meninga for a referendum. It all seems like a missed opportunity to bring attention to the serious issues in Indigenous Communities

I look at a recent article about the result of Sam Ekermawi’s complaint against Sonia Kruger to the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The good news is that Australian Muslims are not a race, for now.

I discuss a recent article from the ABC about the decline in employment in the construction industry and reduced wage growth. From reading the article it appears that some of the analysts have never experienced the challenges of running a small business.
