There is a rumour filtering down from Westralia's north. Some of the former government workers who are affected by the APB chemically induced cancer have allegedly been offered $5,000 to settle their Workers Compensation claims.
Considering close to 50 are already dead, it is not a great outlook of security to leave your family especially since in many cases CentreLink will have to be repaid any amount received as sickness or disability payments.
Maybe the WA government reckon they can pass off this princely sum to dying Aboriginals, knowing full well they are screwing them.
Westralia.Net has already uncovered the Aboriginal Legal Service incorrectly advising the workers that they did not have much hope of legal claim, for reasons contrary to the Workers Compensation Act. (Notice the regular media hasn't picked up that one) Yet now the WA government insurer wants to settle before our boys die.
....For what? $5,000?
And they have treated the claimants as frauds; making them jump through hoops and hurdles for twenty years.
Frauds? ...Surely a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
