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.  

You can become a Patron of the show and help cover the basic costs of making this thing happen (please)

My show ENOUGH is on at the Melbourne Comedy Festival right now! Hot dang!

Plus I'm doing my play #KWANDA which is also good and funny! Just 6 shows left

ENOUGH is coming to Sydney Comedy Festival for 4 shows only
