DUTTON DISHES OUT DOLLARS TRYING TO MOTIVATE HIS DEPARTMENT
In astonishing revelations, today’s Daily Telegraph revealed Peter Dutton’s Department of Home Affairs has spent more than $63,000 this year on motivational speakers.
It seems rather than boosting morale by improving pay and conditions in Dutton’s mega Department, they thought it would be more worthwhile to spend their money on the likes of ex-Australian Idol Casey Donovan and celebrity scientist Dr Karl to pep up disenchanted staff.
It’s been well documented that morale in the Department previously known as Immigration and Border Protection has been consistently low – with employees having little confidence in the Department’s senior management.
The division and instability in Scott Morrison’s Muppet Show has been led by the Minister for Home Affairs and it seems the same discontent is trickling down to Dutton’s Department.
These latest revelations come during a week where Peter Dutton has lashed out in Parliament following ongoing revelations about giving au pairs to rich donors and government jobs to his mates.
Maybe it might be more productive for Scott Morrison to appoint a new Minister for Home Affairs rather than the Department spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on motivational speakers.
