Australian Greens Announce New Income Fairness Policy

Studies have shown that good looking people earn more the rest of the population.

University of Michigan information science professor Markus M. Mobius has identified three reasons why beautiful people are more successful:

1. Physically attractive workers are more confident, and higher confidence increases wages.

2. For a given level of confidence, physically attractive workers are (wrongly) considered more able by employers.

3. Controlling for worker confidence, physically attractive workers have better verbal skills (such as communication and social skills) that raise their wages when they interact with employers.

The Australian Greens do not believe this is fair or consistent with the Greens policy platform that people should not be economically rewarded for luck, skill or effort.

Accordingly, the Australian Greens today announce a new policy which seeks to redress this inequity.  In the new financial year, the Greens will table a private members bill that will seek to legislate mandatory cosmetic surgery for those attractive people earning too much.  In a Green world, beauty and attractiveness cannot be tolerated.

To demonstrate the Australian Green’s resolve, the entire Federal Parliamentary Party has agreed, where necessary, to undergo such a procedure.  At the current time, none of the members passed the necessary threshold requiring treatment.

    As long as they don’t use Doris Bagshawe’s visage as the template. That would be a step too far.

    Not many have had pigmentation augmentation in that diverse bunch.

    My thought on looking at that photo is that the Tasmania /SA gerrymanders have a lot to answer for, and what has Queensland done to be inflicted with Melbourne voters?

    Also, Larrissa Waters is definitely confident.

    Thats pretty close to the truth: all their existing policies are aimed at negating quality advantages of any kind (if you earn more: they tax it, if you are a better job applicant because you are a smart, hard working white man: they introduce a quoto that gets someone else hired, if you are a man hating lesbian: the state requires that you be given access to IVF) etc.

    That looks like a photo of the Central Committee of the sub Primary Schoolteachers Union,what a bloody shower ! There is a lot of mental illness about,the number of voters they get proves that beyond dispute . The old Stalinist nit h is the ugliest just by a small margin .

    What’s going to happen when someone tells them that intelligent people tend to get on in life better than the less mentally endowed? Then again, they will probably be too dumb to understand the issue.

    Gender imbalance alert!

    The party pic exemplifies their white male dominance – six “men” to five “women.”

    They are very white aren’t they?

    What would Waleed say?

    Sparty, you’re a scoundrel.
    And isn’t the replacement for Ludlam a bloke who has endured a discriminatory lack of access to bipedal perambulation?

    Maybe if they identify as Africans, then can get a helping hand from Shoes 4 Africa.

  18. Up The Workers!

    Well, those gerbil worming ‘Mung-beaners’ are a bunch of heels, so they’re half-way there already!

  19. Terry

    Where are the carers for these people?

    Surely some gross negligence on behalf of the nanny-state.

  20. Greg J

    Yep, the ‘diversity’ party.

    As long as you are a middle aged white public servant with no shoulders who has never done an honest day’s work in your life – this is the party for you.

  21. Greg J

    And look at those head-tilts! Tim Blair would have a field day with this lot.

  22. Paul

    I’m all for the greens MPs each get paid their minimum fair wage, and I will add, they get their pension at retirement age, 72, no sooner.

  23. Talleyrand

    So a slime mould has taken hold on the parliamentary lawns?

    Ludlum might have needed the treatment, but he’s resigned.
