On the Job’ is a podcast all about making your work life better

Need a pay rise? There’s an app for that!

The gender pay gap is not going to shift itself, and that’s why Meggie Palmer created PepTalkHer.

Meggie joins Francis and Sally to discuss how the app she created is helping tens of thousands of women reframe their thinking about their value in the workplace, and empowering them to improve their wages and conditions.

Also, the issue of silicosis lung disease is a growing crisis for workers all over the country who are exposed to silica dust at their workplace without the proper protection and protocols in place.
We meet a number of workers impacted by the disease, and National Secretary of the Australian Workers Union (AWU), Dan Walton, is our guest.
