Greetings and welcome to the first edition of the Member Benefits newsletter for 2022!
This month ME has tips to get ahead of the house buying competition, we anaylse Scott Morrison’s claims on wage increases (hint: he got it wrong) and plenty more!
We’re also giving away 10 double passes to see the new film Unchartered!
We don’t mean to alarm you, but you have a bunch of enemies now. You might have seen them already, skulking around the houses you’re thinking of buying. They’re thinking about what colour to paint your walls, planning outdoor furniture for your balcony. Some of them might even be texting real estate agents behind your back, promising to offer more.
Will low unemployment automatically cause wages to increase, as Prime Minister Scott Morrison claimed this week? Don’t count on it, says economist Jim Stanford.
There are many myths about older workers. Most of them are outdated and do no favours to the older members of your workforce, or recognise the experience they bring to the table. A project led by workplace experts Transitioning Well for AustralianSuper has found the maturity these workers offer businesses can positively influence culture – as well as the bottom line.

Street-smart thief Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.
