Commenting on the story: Olsen asked to lead Crows

Crows supporters are very fortunate to have a proven leader in John Olsen. I can see success and solidarity returning to the club.

Reminds me of the Malcolm Blight era. Get ready for more success. – Tony Naish 

Commenting on the story: LGA board awards itself pay rise

I find it incredible that the LGA board can award itself a pay rise in this year of such financial difficulties for so many people and for the country as a whole.

If it is ‘necessary’ then the pay rise should be minimal, if anything at all. – Janice Old

South Australians don’t need an LGA. What value for money do we get from them? 

I live in Gawler and my property is valued at $380,000. My council rates for 2020/21 are $2250! Is this value for money? I don’t think so! 

I and others have had a gutsful of paying over-inflated salaries to self-serving bureaucrats who achieve nothing other than building bigger bureaucracies that serve no purpose. – Leon Wieckowski                                                                                                                                            

Commenting on the story: Fears of TAFE course, job cuts

I’m not surprised. TAFE is still under pressure to manage the bottom line and personnel or courses are not going to stand in the way. 

The Government was happy to throw away 400 thousand out of the aviation training area a few years ago because they would not listen to their experienced staff, so it does not surprise me at all. 

Additionally, tryingto attract Qantas to move their head office to this state and pick up some of their training is pie-in-the-sky stuff. There is no training in this state for engineering any more, so without that kind of support, Qantas will never consider moving their operations here.

Govt Ministers and their toecutter bottom-line cronies need to be educated a lot more by those who actually know the aviation a little better than they think they do. 

I would not recommend TAFE training to anybody these days, after my employment experience with the organisation. – Keith Ladd

Commenting on the opinion piece: Running home from home office legal minefield 

I was the only member of our IT support team who worked from the office all through Covid lockdown. I spent an enormous amount of time sending hardware to people’s homes, and endless hours getting people connected to our VPN so that they could access work-related resources. 

I saw people come back in to the office to collect chairs when they realised that the dining table is not an office desk. Hardware and infrastructure were the greatest bugbears. 

Some enjoyed the experience. Others found that family members couldn’t make the distinction between being home, and working from home. 

I for one am happy to see everyone else back in the office where they belong. – Duane Ferguson
