'How can they do our tax when they can't use our toilets?'
PAULINE Hanson has questioned the competency of Australian Tax Office staff after the organisation installed new squat toilets in their new Melbourne office.
The Scenic Rim Senator took to Facebook over the weekend to share her concerns over the toilets, which cater to the 20% of ATO staff who come from non-English speaking backgrounds.
"You won't believe what the Government and ATO are doing now!" she said.
Just when you thought our PC brigade couldn't be any more backward, someone came up with an idea to put squat toilets into the new Australian Tax Office in Melbourne.
"Why? Because over 20% of the ATO workforce in Melbourne come from non-English speaking backgrounds.
"The question I pose is if they can't work out how to use a westernised toilet, how are they expected to work out our tax system and give advice to ordinary Australians?
Australian Services Union taxation branch secretary Jeff Lapidos tried to do just that for the Daily Mail - saying the move followed an issue at the ATO's Canberra offices.
"One woman didn't know how to use the conventional toilet correctly and was squatting on the seat," he said.
"She would often leave a mess behind, and there were many complaints about it because it wasn't possible to identify who it was, the ATO put posters on the doors of all the toilet cubicles to try and correct her understanding.
"That worked after a while, but I think it made them realise they ought to install the toilets."
