More than a nickel

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

QUEENS­LAND’S rich­est man Clive Palmer has re­warded 50 em­ploy­ees from a nickel re­fin­ery with a week­end get­away to Port Dou­glas. “The re­wards for my en­tire work­force match the per­for­mance of the in­di­vid­u­als and the busi­ness in its en­tirety, that’s why the prizes are so big, they sim­ply de­serve it,” Mr Palmer said. The Yab­ulu nickel re­fin­ery near Townsville has recorded a $16m turn­around in the first 12 months since Mr Palmer bought the fa­cil­ity. The re­cip­i­ents range from fit­ters and elec­tri­cal trades­peo­ple to su­per­vi­sors and en­gi­neers.
