Just imagine what Alan Joyce would be capable of if he worked the whole week!

via Plume for Android

I mean, to earn what the average worker gets in a year, Alan Joyce has to work nearly three and a half whole days.

via Plume for Android

I don’t know why people are calling for Alan Joyce to be sacked. That won’t save 5000 jobs. He’s only paid 80x the average worker income.

@mattdasilva It is. It’s essentially a permanent gallery of his work. You can book tours with the curator. I’ll do that next time in MEL.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattdasilva

@mattdasilva I was upgraded to one of the “signature” rooms, “Blek le Rat’s Room”, hence his stencil work and a book about him too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattdasilva

@mattdasilva Sad indeed. There’s four books of his work here in the room too. I’ve been flicking through them.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattdasilva

@mattdasilva I hadn’t heard of him before, but I do like the works in the room. I do like the concept of these hotels.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattdasilva

@SnarkyPlatypus No, it tends to be a case of them looking at the charges afterwards, assuming they recorded who got which tickets.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mattdasilva Yes. I’m staying at The Cullen, and it’s full of his work. artserieshotels.com.au/cullen/

@matthewlandauer Oh yes, I am indeed interested in that. I shall read and digest over the next couple of days.

@SnarkyPlatypus The manual ones, you’d just write the journey details on them before giving them out, and “Not to exceed $60” or whatever.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus There must be some way to limit them. I’ve never dealt with the issuing side of these newer “Taxi eTicket” things though.
