Alan Kohler and James Kirby entered The Money Cafe with heavy hearts after hearing of the severe cuts to journalism jobs at Fairfax.

James reveals that the super guarantee is no guarantee and a minimum $1 billion of super is unpaid every year.

And they reflect on the Winners and losers in shorts – Vocus was a rare win for shorters this week.
