Telstra employees to walk off the job over proposed wage deal. Anyone who’s visited a Telstra store won’t notice much difference.

“Oh look, I’m not getting served – again!” said long-term customer, Jenny Phillips (74).

Telstra employees are set to walk off the job today in protest of a proposed 1.5% pay offer by the Federal Government. Naturally, the idea of no one being available to tell customers they’re fully booked and can’t be seen today has sent the technologically illiterate i.e. Baby Boomers, into a spin.

“I visit the Telstra store every day to get help getting into my phone, and every day someone with a clipboard takes my name and number and never calls me back, so what am I to do now?” asked Baby Boomer, Len Smith (71).

“If there’s no one there to tell me they’re fully booked, it will just feel wrong,” said retiree, Alice Tawney (58).

“Oh look, I’m not getting served – again!” said long-term Telstra customer, Jenny Phillips (74).

With no one on hand to tell customers that they can’t be seen, the general public are bracing for a backlash from the grey-haired sector of the community.

“This is an outrage. I’m going to complain to the highest level of government, just as soon as my grandson shows me how to work my electronic mail thingy-majig,” said Mrs Phillips.

Only time will tell if this bold stop-work action will work. Until then, unmanned Telstra stores everywhere will seem like business as usual.
