Qantas, shame on you

May 29, 2023 | News

Little bird tells me that Qantas is in negotiations with Uber to nationally replace taxis as the vehicle of choice for crew movements.
One would have to assume that Uber is prepared for their employees to work at a rate lower than taxis, and then take up to 30% off fare of shore to minimise there tax obligations in Australia, for it to make its way back to the millionaires in Silicon Valley! Qantas shame on you, supporting an exploitive business model harming the most vulnerable workers in this country. But Australian workers know Qantas has form.
