will get worse - until pressure starts to work.
the only pressure under labor will upward inflationary pressure.
The country cant afford Bowens Green unreliables policy especially given the state of world politics at this point in time

I have to call it a policy because even though during the election on every subject brought up Labor said they have a PLAN but since gaining power there is no sign of a plan only rhetoric about their policies.

Was in Woolies this morning. Its always best early - but they often haven't got everything out.

Seem to be a nicer crowd too.

usually pop into Coles around 10am...just after the rush and a chance to put some stock onto the shelves.
Actually one grand daughter just got a part time job with woollies as a night shelf stacker while she does University during the day.

Yes because staff that started earlier get pushed back due to our minor pay rise they then cut hours eg the bakers might start an hour later now or the worker in the seafood dept.

you would think at around $23 an hour night shelf stacking jobs would be in big demand that way isles are not an obstacle course with pallet loads of goods being unpacked during shopping hours.

It goes up 25percent pay after 6pm on weekdays and on Saturdays all day.

Meanwhile Australians are experiencing deja vu as shelves across the nation are laid out bare.

Australians are being hit with a national egg shortage, as consumers move towards free-range eggs amid rising production costs, extreme weather events and worker shortages.

Supermarkets across the country are back to implementing purchase limits, with farmers grappling to keep up with demand after they decreased their chicken numbers during lockdown.

But free-range eggs aren’t the only product Australian shoppers are being stripped of, with supermarkets reporting bare shelves for other household items such as chickpeas, lentils, lettuce, tissues and cold and flu tablets.

We’re experiencing reduced availability across some of our lentil and chickpea products due to supply chain delays,” a Woolworths spokesman said.

The supply chain issues are a combination of the war in Ukraine, flooding and other extreme weather events on Australian shores.
