Babes Against Bullshit: Christine Holgate Needs To Stop Playing The Victim

Holgate

Never in a million years did I think a female CEO would ever pull a stunt as Christine Holgate did. As a wealthy woman, she gifted her executives $5k in watches. While this might seem kind if you’re rich, it was a stab in the gut for the people who put help Australia Post run by doing the actual work. I know someone who does so much more for the company than all these corporates who think they’re all that. My dad works as a truck driver, often working overtime to bring in extra money. He should be getting luscious gifts. Not the bigwigs who sit at their oak desks throwing hundred-dollar bills around like it’s raining.

It disgusts me that Ms Holgate would use the Prime Minister’s excuse to bully her into getting out of trouble. 9News put out these claims, and other media outlets have covered the story whenever it comes up. I usually wouldn’t hide something like this, but since my father works for Australia Post, I felt I needed to say something.

I don’t like Scott Morrison, given how he royally screwed up by pissing off to Hawaii with his family when Australia was burning during the 2019-2020 bushfires. Yes, I understand that he promised his daughters a holiday, but he could go on a vacation any time he wanted had the coronavirus not happened. He should’ve stayed in the country to support the nation through one of its darkest times. Also, his response to the Brittany Higgins rape allegations has been lacklustre. Instead, he uses his young daughters to show himself as horrified. It shouldn’t matter if you have children or not!

Accountability Will Never Happen Because Ms Holgate Is Rich And Powerful

While this Babes Against Bullshit post has nothing to do with Scott Morrison, I want to point out that given Ms Holgate’s high position and power, her holding herself accountable for the expensive gifts she gave will never happen. She has already claimed to have done nothing wrong. Ah… yes, she did. It isn’t illegal to hand out gifts. But it is highly offensive to all those people who spend countless hours working and get paid $60k a year. Meanwhile, all the corporates get like $90k annually for just sitting at a desk or in the boardroom throwing out orders.

Holgate’s victim mentality is weak at best. If she believes playing the victim will work, she has another thing coming. Also, people in similar positions will support those identical to them. Now, I’m not against all-powerful people. Just the ones who give the rest of the world the middle finger.

We End This Here

Many people, rich or not in high positions, tend to forget that they had to work to the top of the totem pole once upon a time. Holgate appears to think that she should be given a free pass because she is a woman with influence. Sorry, but as a woman myself, she should NOT be given a free ride. Why? Because she royally fucked up! She had a good job, and then she went and gave her lackeys expensive gifts and bitched and said she was bullied.

I’m not going to pretend I know the whole story; honestly, I don’t care. But Christine Holgate needs to realise that being the CEO of a successful company doesn’t mean you can spend money on gifts for your minions and forget about the workers who spend countless hours trying to make ends meet for their families.
