[General] Boo Hoo Hoo

Get that tissue ready. This may be the saddest story you have ever read.

Susan Wood is going to suffer a $100,000 pay cut. This means that she’ll only make $350,000 this year for presenting a TV show.

Fucking Hell, it’s not like you’re going to starve! You’re not even that good. Take the $350,000 and be happy with it. It’s a good deal!

Goddamn retard. Yes, it’s stressful getting a pay cut. Yes, this is a BIG pay cut (22%) but seriously are you going to see a reduction in your lifestyle? No more boasting on TV about the expensive cosmetics you use.

TVNZ needs a sharp kick in the bollocks. I volunteer to start. Who’s with me?!

From what I understand this all started when Wood kicked up a fuss over having equal billing with Sainsbury on Close Up. To end the tanty Ralston offered her a $100k pay rise.

Steve Maharey got wind of this, said "you can't do that, not after the baily thing" and got the board to intervene. The board wanted Fraser to get involved, but he, quite understandably didn't want anything to do with it, and pissed off with a nice fat check.

So as we can see Wood is well within her rights to contest the pay cut, but she's still a silly old trout. That's right Susan, "old."

Not according to the latest Dom Post story (see new post).

Nary a mention of Steve Maharey
