In recent days, you may have seen news about how a group of lawyers are considering launching a class action against the owners of OTR service stations if accusations of staff underpayment prove true.
If you haven’t seen the coverage, it’s buried on The Advertiser’s home page, wasn’t posted on their social media and is behind a paywall. Because it’s a non-story, obviously.
Although if you would like to read about the proposed class action you can go here, but don’t. Why would you?
I mean, have you ever seen an unhappy OTR employee? No, they love their lives. They get to listen to hit 107 all day, have countless ‘opportunities’ to do overtime and no two minutes are ever the same. What other job lets you be a barista, a cleaner and a X Lotto attendant all at once? Seriously, at the same exact time.
Not to mention the education. An OTR traineeship is basically Australia’s answer to a Stanford MBA.
Yes sir, we are certainly thankful for our benevolent overlords at Peregrine Corporation and any suggestion that the above story was written under anything other than standard editorial practices is frankly ridiculous.
We don’t even do paid advertorials (mostly because nobody is prepared to give us $8,500 for one). Although if anyone is willing to part with that kind of coin, we’re willing to sell out immediately.
