I’m not sure there isn’t a spelling mistake with that last word, but in any case, I was sent this submission, ostensibly for a new category “worst pay”, from the Australian Services Union who are aiming to increase community service workers’ (mental health/domestic violence/legal centres/financial counseling/homeless) salaries up from an average of about $35,000.
This is a shot of one of the offending offices where they will be demonstrating tomorrow.
I say yeah, workers flag and all that, and the pay does seem pathetically low, but as The Worst of Perth, I’m more outraged by the use of that fucking Papyrus font and the logo. Are the clients supposed to be brown stains to be wiped up by the absorbent paper towel of counselling? And if Ruah is an ancient Hebrew word, isn’t an Egyptian font a little in bad taste, what with the Pharoah and all that? What’s wrong with Comic sans? In any case, support the workers by either blowing your horn as you go by, or sending in any spare fonts or logos you might have. A shower of frogs on their bosses and the State Government, ie, to each according to their needs.
