ACC: The buck stops where?
Wed, 13 Jun 2012 7:00p.m.
Yesterday, it was ACC’s chairman.
Today, it was their CEO.
We can't recall two bosses of a Crown entity going so suddenly, so close together.
But then, ACC is different.
There is no branch of the state we receive more complaints about than ACC - not even close.
Maybe that's because so many of us deal with them, they receive over $1.5 million claims a year.
Publicly, the two bosses lost in the past 24 hours were told to, “build ACC” into a stable enterprise.
Behind the scenes, they were told to increase revenue, and decrease costs.
But after 60 Minutes went to air with Bronwyn Pullar's story, it was inevitable someone would go.
The buck stopped very high up indeed.

These guys may have gone but the Governments combative and "so what" tone suggests more of the same. Funny that many of the long term claimants that are denied their entitlements are female and were abused as children. The same demographic this Government says it needs our nation to make more of an in order to stem the rot. Hollow, meaningless Words?!
