Aboriginal community scotdesco turns saltbush to create jobs

Posted

Aboriginal men who are part-time farmers have managed to find other jobs in a new part-time contract they have worked in for more than six months.

Permanent workers have had their wages slashed and the company, known as Scotdesco, has decided to create full-time jobs to take advantage of higher production costs, which are pushing up costs for people in rural areas.

In a bid to keep costs down for rural consum블랙 잭ers, Scotdesco wants to be the first food retailer to sell packaged food without a separate label.

Rural businesswoman Sue-Ann Young is part-owner of Scotdesco, which has about 1,000 employees and its first permanent employees are expected to be here soon.

Mr Young said despite this, the small business group had never had to go 안산출장안마through the lengthy recruitment process they currently underwent.

«If you are making $100,000 a year, if you’re in a good situation — a well-paid job and a stable income — you should not be taking on any of the costs for you,» he said.

«And then when you’re out there doing your business and the cost is up, when you see your rent’s up, you go, ‘Oh man, I could use a little help’ — or to see your customers — who are some of the most passionate people in this economy — you know they need that help.»

The first day they started, Mr Young said he was very nervous about the new arrangements, and said they were «absolutely shocked» by the negative reaction.

«We did the job they expected us to do, we just took a로투스 홀짝 very little pay cut and a little reduction in hours as well as benefits, so that’s how we built the foundation for that.»

Ms Young said she wasn’t surprised by the complaints from members of the community, but she was sure the company would adapt if the community began to complain.

«That’s the nature of the work,» she said.

«These communities will do whatever they need to do to keep the company and the people they work with successful.»

As of July this year, Scotdesco employs about 10 permanent jobs in rural communities in Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania and Queensland and operates more than 100 shops across four states.
