Tax office gets scabby with staff bin rights

TIMES are tough at the Australian Taxation Office, with bosses telling staff they can no longer afford the luxury of having a "personal bin".

An internal email titled "under desk bins" has been circulated to ATO staff.

"From 30 June, 2014 all under desk bins will be removed from your workstation," employees were told.

"Bins will also be removed from meeting rooms ...

"In the absence of your personal bin, you will need to use the bins in the kitchen to dispose of your rubbish."
