Tips and rumours

Mapping democracy at Macca's ... Labor rumbles in Qld ... help Crikey name the royal baby ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Democracy ends here. It’s been a bit quieter at the planned McDonald’s site at Tecoma in the Dandenongs east of Melbourne after Supreme Court beak Emilios Kyros slapped protesters with a wide-ranging “go away” order last week. Some wily stencil artists have acted on the judge’s command, helpfully assisting McDissidents unsure of where they’re allowed — and not allowed — to venture.

    In my local Woolies the staff that should be at the checkouts are clogging up just about every aisle restocking.

    Re supermarket queues: Many non-supermarket outlets such as Big W, Target, and Subway (as well as airport check-ins, last time I travelled), use the single-queue system. But their success depends on having sufficient numbers of staff to keep the line of customers moving. Woolworths tends not to do this, with 1 or none of a possible 18 check-outs staffed in the evening and 1 staff member supervising the (always slow-moving) 5 self-checkout stations. There has never been any effort to supplement this when queues are long and customers are clearly exasperated. I have frequently been told that ‘there are no staff available.’
