That's just the tip of the iceberg

All we need now is payment for all the hours we worked OVER what we were paid and charged to the customer.

Many Australians were paid for 37.5 hours a week or 40 hours per week, as per their employment contract, but worked (and charged the customer) for many more.

All these extra hours were recorded in one of IBMs multiple and redundant labour tracking systems, and the customer was charged for the hours worked, but the employee only got paid the contract hours, the rest was "expected" and supposed to be a "gift" to IBM.

Those that refused to work the extra hours for free, were abused by their manager for only "doing the minimum", given poor performance reviews, and made redundant at the earliest opportunity.
