A Piece Of Work

IN TODAY’s Phage, senior writer Suzy Freeman-Greene laments the workaholism ruining our way of life.

Working too hard? Suzy will never be accused of that! One column a week is her output, according to the Phage’s internal search engine.

Good work if you can get it.

Anyone tempted to regard Fairfax’s stock price – 75.5 cents as of trading’s close on Friday – as a buying opportunity might want to consider what sort of a company allows someone who does so little work to lecture those who do much more.

Come on, Gina, buy the bloody company and help Suzy take it easy forever more.

  1. Poor baby Suzy.

    Back when I was a wee one, we called that workaholism "having a work ethic". And if our trade was such that we were paid proportional to our productivity, it made us bloody rich.

    Perhaps the good Professor B could provide us with a running total not only of the current share price, but of how many shares are extant and consequently of the total price required for complete control. Just how much will Gina be out of pocket if she stumps up the lot up front?
