Sorry about the delayed episode, all! My bad. Comedy Festival is on and all that. Anyway.
Sally McManus has been the Secretary of the Australian Council of Trade Unions since 2017. She’s the public face of the trade union movement in Australia and she takes little to no shit whatsoever.
We recorded this chat on the day the ACTU launched their call for the minimum wage to be raised to a living wage. I asked Sally to explain what that means, as well as her stances on democratic socialism, neoliberalism, privatisation, insecure work, just how hard it is to go on strike in Australia and how the ALP could become a helluva lot better.
