    Wrong, Peter and Beryce – Super is deducted directly from you salary and deposited into an account that cannot be touched until you’re 60.

    You pay, not your employer.

    The Dodgy Brothers – Tony-Bob and Joe-Shonkey – in their hokey smokey, just want you to think that rather than their (part of the) contribution going onto your employer’s bottom line it’s going into your working pocket?
    …….. are you serious Tamas?

    The above is further evidence, if such was necessary, that Tamas Calderwood still has difficulty telling the difference between facts and opinions.
