A year Cheeseburger Gothic

It was the first anniversay of my dad dying, earlier this week. I took some time off to think about a few things. I called my mother, who'd gone down to Sydney to stay with my brother for a fortnight. And I worked.

I feel like I've had a pretty poor time of it the last twelve months. The poor state of my bank balance would attest to that. For a long time last year I wasn't able to do much beyond drag myself through the week, stare at the screen a lot, and grind out the weekly columns. I rarely blogged. It felt like I got nowhere with any book writing.

It still feels that way. But I was talking with a friend last night and I realised I had actually written two manuscripts in the last year. The first drafts of THE CRUEL STARS and THE GOLDEN MINUTE. I'm still chipping the last couple of chapters out of the rock face of the latter, but I am close enough to imagine typing 'The End' in the next few days. (After which I'll put it out to my beta crew).

I'm also thinking of taking the Burger back to it's origins as a simple diary of each day's work, at least for a little while. It helps to track what you're doing and it'd take the pressure off feeling the need to (ugh) generate content.

Anyway, as I said, for those up for it, the new Smith and Cady will be available in beta next week. It's looking pretty good, but it always helps to have fresh pair of eyes look over it.

ENSLAVED & SLSTAFIR The Zoo

 

ENSLAVED

With very special guests SLSTAFIR

Australian Tour 2018

The Viking gods of progressive black metal return to herald the coming of Spring along Australias East Coast this August.

Fresh from delivering the outstandingly heavy powerhouse of an album E, ENSLAVED are bringing the brutal beauty of their doom-laden drums and sledgehammer guitars to deliver a glimpse of metal Valhalla in the blood pounding manner that only they can. Grutle Kjellson growls and rasps to a deceptively wide range while his bass stomps through the Concert Hall. The music is magnificent, with ten minute songs vanishing in what feels like a matter of seconds.

Hellbound Feb 2018 SLSTAFIR Join ENSLAVED as their very special guests for the tour. 20 years into their astonishing career and riding high on the five-star reviews for their Berdreyminn album, SLSTAFIR finally bring their blend of intense post-rock majesty and beautifully melodic,  atmospheric progressive metal to Australia.

Slstafir are on a mission to re-imagine the idiosyncratic grandeur of Icelandic landscapes in vivid sonic shades. Total immersion is compulsory.  The Guardian

The last time ENSLAVED toured Australia it felt like the closing of a chapter. Instead of winding down however, the band have found new inspiration, and this re-energised ENSLAVED is truly something to behold. New works Sacred Horse and Storm Son alongside epic songs from throughout the bands outstanding career (including such intense classics as Roots Of The mountain, Vetrarntt and Isa) will deliver fans a metal experience like no other.

I have seldom seen more ecstatic fans than...

SWP: using incentives to lift recruiter performance "IndyWatch Feed Seq"

The Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP) continues to grow. Figures for this financial year to the end of April 2018 show 6,573 SWP visas have been approved. This compares with 6,166 visas approved in total for the full 2016-17 financial year. Moreover, most workers do very well under the scheme. When the World Bank asked 400 Pacific workers how satisfied they were with the SWP, the average score was 8.6, on a scale of one to ten. Similar smaller surveys of Timorese workers found that 96% were satisfied, with 68% very satisfied. In Vanuatu, a survey of 100 returned workers showed that all of the women and 91% of men were satisfied.

That said, this is no time for complacency. It is not clear that arrangements that support a few thousand workers will support the much larger number that could enter Australia both under the Seasonal Worker Programme and the much larger Pacific Labour Scheme. Moreover, while some countries are doing very well under the SWP (Vanuatu, Tonga, Timor-Leste), others are missing out (PNG, Solomon Islands).

The SWP also continues to be subjected to both generalised and specific claims of exploitation in the media. There are also complaints about recruiters in sending countries scamming potential workers. These incidents undermine the development benefits of the scheme, as well as wider community acceptance of the value of the SWP in Australia and in sending countries.

In responding to these problems, so far the focus has been on compliance across the horticultural industry, which is appropriate given the higher number of backpackers working on farms, and their greater risk of exploitation. Victoria, Queensland and South Australia are all introducing labour hire licensing.

There are also SWP-specific responses. One recently-announced reform is the piloting of a 24/7 information line for seasonal workers. It success will depend on how well the information the hotline receives is processed and acted on.

These are all positive moves, but what more could be done? A recent book Merchants of Labor: Recruiters and International Labor Migration by Professor Philip Martin reviews the global experience of the approximately ten million workers who cross international borders...
