12 April 2017 | ABC

11 April 2017 | The Age

I was buying a coffee before work, when the barista looked straight at me and blurted out in an alarmed and defensive voice: "I'm only here until I can get a teaching job.

Another customers scowled at me as if I were some kind of agent-inquisitor from the Gen Y thought-police. What the hell?
