I’m kicking off a no-knickers challenge in protest over the recent sacking of textile underwear workers, while the sacked employees have to live with the knowledge that their bosses received obscene pay rises within the last year.
I reckon this could really take off, and in return, stocks of underwear made in China can stay in the stores. You’ll save money. Your body bits will be set free. You’ll save time getting dressed in the morning. Less washing. Ladies, embrace the long skirt and feel the freedom. Gents, what’s wrong with a bit of “commando” spirit (I know thats an American term and I have never understood it, but what the hell). Come on!! Who’s with me?
Sacked Pacific Brands workers have taken another hit with revelations the company’s directors were handed massive pay rises just last year.
Company documents show the combined pay of 13 directors rose from $7 million to $15.5 million.
Textiles, Clothing and Footwear Union Secretary Barry Tubbner says the greed of people like CEO Sue Morphet is at the bottom of all of our economic problems

it brings in a whole ‘nother element to when i wear a certain almost salsa type skirt to work that actually seems to be able to change weather patterns and make it a gusty day 😆February 27, 2009 at 7:43 am #397289GiannaMember
I said to my husband that “Pacific Brands” need to be punished so I love your idea Good Lifer. :tup: :clap:
I also want to know if there is anyone left in the whole of Australia that makes undies here? If not …. Judi …. oh Judi …..February 27, 2009 at 7:52 am #397290
Errhh, umm, yeah, actually, I don’t mind going without, Good Lifer. Besides, I don’t buy many as I wear them until they are almost see-through. (Too much information here, sorry!!) Just so long as I don’t have to go without a bra on formal occasions, such as going to town to pick up the mail, buy a few groceries, etc. 🙂February 27, 2009 at 7:54 am #397291KirstyMember

This may be a major embarrassment……and I may have to stop posting forever more……I know that I’m old(ish), but honestly, I need an abbreviations dictionary to keep up with you lot!! In other words, what is a VPL??? Does such a dictionary exist?? Perhaps I could post something in the suggestions box re same. O.K. I’ll go now, feeling rather stupid. :pFebruary 27, 2009 at 8:28 am #397294KirstyMember
