    Aahhh, working with children checks. The little engine that couldn't. Ignoring for a moment the moral questions around public shaming and the implications of naming pedophiles, lets look at WWCCs. First of all, there is no process for monitoring someone with a WWCC. No one is contacted if someone with a WWCC commits a crime that would have initially barred them from receiving the check. Second, everything that comes up in a WWCC check AND MORE, is covered by a police check. Third, and finally, there is no national WWCC system, not all of Australia has access to a WWCC.

    If we put this in perspective, Maccas and Pizza 'the Hut' now have a system where people with long histories of drug dealing, fraud, assault, domestic violence, etc, can still work freely. Fantastic work everyone, Maccas and the Hut have successfully 'ticked the box'.
