Deloitte Australia is trying to be transparent by releasing salary data but apparently this tactic isn’t working, not with Daily Mail writing headlines like Young Aussie reveals why many millennials no longer want to work in corporate jobs – after boomers said the generation was ‘lazy and entitled’ that is.
Here’s the TikTok that inspired such dramatics:

“So graduates apparently earn around $65,000 a year which is a fine graduate salary for a normal job but working at a big four consulting firm is not a normal job. They demand to basically devote your life to them,” she says. “They make their graduates work 12-14 hours a day and they’re paying them what, $65,000? It’s an absolute joke. It’s modern day slavery. They bill these graduates out at $200, $300 an hour and how much do they pay them, $20 an hour? Tell me, how it makes sense? This is why I hate big business and why people are flocking away from large corporations in record numbers because they’ve realize they are getting absolutely rorted.”
Maybe it’s because I’m old (or American?) but I had to look ‘rorted‘ up. No shame.
Ah, I get it.
