New Study Finds That Using The Pandemic As An Excuse To Replace Experienced Staff With Labour Hire Might Result In A Fuckload Of Cancelled Flights

A landmark new study has today revealed one of the major causes behind the nation’s aviation crisis.

Conducted by South Betoota Polytechnic’s Business School in conjunction with the Betoota Public Policy Insititute, it’s been confirmed that replacing swathes of your staff with labour hire firms to try and maximise your profits can in fact limit the service you provide.

Speaking to The Advocate this morning, the lead researcher explained to us that it can actually result in a fuck load of flights being canceled and countless bits of luggage going missing.

“Yeah, so what we discovered about 5-10 minutes after beginning our research, is that getting rid of people who have made a career out of working with airplanes and replacing them with a lowly paid casual workforce who have no benefits can result in an appalling drop in the functionality of an airline,” explained the researcher.

This comes as Qantas, and their subsidiary Jetstar are canceling their flights for fun, with labour-hire baggage handlers revealing that one in 10 pieces of luggage at Sydney airport is going missing every day.

It’s believed the issues with the airline’s baggage handling may have something to do with the fact they used the pandemic as an excuse to sack their full-time experienced baggage handlers and replace them with labour hire workers from labour-hire firms that are now having to ask other labour hire firms to contract some more labour hire workers for them.

The laying off of 10s of thousands of other staff during the pandemic (while they were receiving eyewatering amounts of money from the federal government through a variety of different income streams) is also apparently contributing to the situation where you turn up at the airport not knowing whether you are going anywhere or not.

With Qantas seemingly forgetting how its planes get loaded with people and baggage, it’s not known whether anything will be done to remedy to the issue, with Alan Joyce and his board seemingly not that fussed in returning to the days when the airline was one of the most respected in the world.

More to come.
