There is BIG MONEY in Plumbing.
« on: May 04, 2017, 03:14:10 PM »
hi guys, came across this today, cheers
                Plumbers reminded not to talk pricing with competitors - Commerce Commission                           
     Trade Me founder Sam Morgan became an investor in home maintenance company Goodnest in June 2014
Plumbers are being warned not to discuss what they charge for services after a tweet involving Trade Me founder Sam Morgan hinted at price fixing. The Commerce Commission has been contacting plumbing associations throughout the country asking them to remind their members not to discuss pricing. Morgan posted a screen grab of a plumber's tweet. The plumber said he was angry Morgan's home maintenance firm, Goodnest, was charging lower prices in Auckland. He told Morgan he intended to raise the pricing issue at a Master Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Association meeting.

You have to wonder if Joe Smith had tweeted this whether the Commerce Commission would have given a shit. 
Have you learned lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you?  Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed the passage with you?  (Walt Whitman 1819-1891)  American Poet
