WESTPAC SCREWS AUSTRALIANS AGAIN
"A BANK YOU CAN BANK ON".....
UNLESS YOU HAPPEN TO BE ONE OF OUR EMPLOYEES
The Stump is a big believer in the Free Market System (it’s not perfect but sheds better than anything else so far) but is not so naive to believe that big companies are not inherently bastards and ethically only as good as the people you hire to run them.
One thing that really gets on the Stumps goat, is when companies put their hands out for government (read taxpayer) assistance then turn around and screw the taxpayer but off-shoring jobs. Listen, you bastards you lost that right to off shore jobs the moment you stuck your greedy little noses in the Tax payer trough.
The latest piece company from Bastards Inc, is WESTPAC Bank. Westpac after shafting the consumer for years with Ned Kelly fees and charges in a government protected market (not to mention an unlimited government guarantee on deposits) has the nerve to outsource Australian jobs to India in an act of sheer greed.
A government with balls would withdraw the deposit guarantee, call the big four banks onto the carpet and advise “here’s the deal, you want government special treatment, youse blokes start playing the game or as of next week it’s a deregulated market, to any overseas bank who want to play by the rules.
As I said a government with balls.....not Tinker bell KRudd and his team of loony tunes.
