"The University of Newcastle provided documents showing it previously paid undisclosed commissions totalling almost $24 million to international student agents since 2010.
It has also revealed that money spent on hospitality for the agents soared from $8,000 to $36,000 last year.
The university said the extra spending was "an investment in a training event" in 2014."
$36,000 is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for the University of Newcastle.
It spends endless amounts of money on using legal firms to get rid of whistleblowers, providing higher salaries, rewards and promotion to academics who get rid of whistleblowers, to silence/gag students and staff who have been bullied/harassed/victimised at the University, paying senior management exorbitant salaries, keeping the vast media and spin department going, etc etc.
As a taxpayer, are you happy for your money to be used like this?
Would you like $36,000 to be spent on your next company event?
What about $24 million - yes, $24,000,000.00?
