A week at the races
Here in Melbourne very little business is done this week. Cup day is a holiday and a massive chunk of the office workforce disappear for Oakes on Thursday as well. Plus there is a large percentage of these missing on Wednesday and Friday due to hangovers. To top this all off Monday is an RDO for the building industry. All in all, productivity could be boasted by 2% pa if the week was done away with. But then we would get to smell the roses. They were out in full bloom on Saturday at Flemington.
