It’s starting to happen, there’s a little stir… injured workers are speaking up. And they’re getting noticed. Thank you to the brilliant WorkCoverVictim (and my cyber friend – well how else to injured workers meet!?), and your team for supporting injured workers through your brilliant website. You deserve your visit from THE Erin Brockovich… Erin Brockovich, you revived some injured workers today. THANK YOU.

…And, they keep insisting that there are many Australian workers that want to be ‘on the system’, or as put especially for me, ‘how many Australian’s want to shut their businesses down and live off the Government’s money’.
I wonder where this comes from, are the WorkSafe agent employees trained to think that anyone on their payroll is dodgy? It certainly might explain why no one is compassionate, no one is empathetic, no one seems to understand, no one can answer a question appropriately, no one can make things happen for you, no one is interested (staff are here today gone tomorrow), all you get is lies, lies, lies or no answer, irrelevant treatment and judgement.
