Dear Affco - David Shearer doesn't visit scum
Affco upset by Shearer's picket visit
Affco, the company at the centre of a long-running employment dispute, is disappointed Labour leader David Shearer visited workers on the picket line but didn't visit management.
Dear Affco (or should that be Dear Sherson Willis?) the reason David Shearer didn't visit Affco is because being the leader of the Labour Party, David Shearer doesn't visit scum.
Let's be clear, a corporate making $20 million in profits, taken over by a family worth $300 million using hunger as a negotiating tactic to crush their workers is nothing short of scum.
To use the 5000 children who are reliant on those jobs as collateral damage makes Affco nothing but scum.
To redefine locked out workers as strikers so that those hundreds of families were no longer eligible for the emergency benefit makes Affco scum.
Affco have used tactics so low, they make the Ports of Auckland look like a good employer. The social damage this filthy rich company and their filthy rich family are prepared to wage on some of the most vulnerable workers in the country should be decried from every NZer who cares about social justice.
That's why I will always boycott Talley's.
