Striking Students Willing To Agree To 8 Sitting Days Next Year

Thousands of Australian students who went on strike today have reached a compromise agreement that would see them go to school 8 days in the first half of next year, the same number of sitting days in Parliament in 2019.

“We figured that if our leaders are going to turn up for a week and a bit next year, then we should probably match that,” a student spokesperson said.

Many students took the full day off today, reducing their sitting days in 2018 to just 192.

Coalition MP Matt Canavan said that striking students would “only learn how to join the dole queue”, and later asked for tips to how to join the dole queue, potentially in around May next year. He said he was asking “for a friend”.
