    I also now do freelance writing for FPC Courier newspapers (Sydney Central Courier, Wentworth Courier, Inner Western Courier etc)... it's commercial writing, so not really journalism.

    Also, this isn't really paid work, but I do stuff for community radio so if people are interested in that kind of thing they can ask if they want.

    Re: Employment Advice Line

    I'm wondering how taxes are deducted? I got paid about $ 18 per hour as nightfill at Big W and how many % will be deducted as taxes? I am Casual and I work mostly from 7 pm to Midnight and sometime up to 1 or 2 am. Am I entitled some extra $$ by working in such late night shifts? Please enlighten me :P

    Re: Employment Advice Line

    There's an withholding tax chart published by the ATO that tells employers how much to deduct based on your fortnightly pay. I have one lying around at home somewhere.

    And yes, you're entitled to extra pay working late night shifts. Check your EBA. For Safeway/Woolies, there's an extra loading for working past 10pm - don't remember how much but it's in the lines of 50%. Woolies, so far, are pretty good payers so it should already be taken into account.

    Seeing as you're probably 19 or 20, $18/hour for nightfill sounds like they've put that loading on for you.

    Again, check your EBA.

    Re: Employment Advice Line

    i dont work there anymore, but i know enough about the reject shop to answer any queries.
    *sigh* i'm currently looking for work atm. i've applied to lots of places, just waiting for that blissful call "interview" ahhh... hey i did all the online application shiz for colesmyer...but would it hurt to actually rock up to my local coles with my resume, you know go in and actually talk to someone? or wouldnt they want that.
    Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat, I'd give it all gladly, if our lives could be like that.

    Re: Employment Advice Line

    I got the pay rates sheet which I don't understand at the moment. hourly rate is 17.61, overtime 1.5 first is $ 25.0005, overtime doubletime is $ 32.29 ; 25% loading is 21.28, 30% loading is $ 22.02. What is the meaning of these overtime first, overtime doubletime and loading please.
