WOG, "Working On Government" wages, derived from the British acronym stenciled on shirts of laborers assigned to government projects. These laborers were often migrants, and as such the term has now become synonymous with the newly emigrated. Unfortunately, these migrants are frequently under attack for "stealing Aussie jobs", which is highly ironic given that the only "true" Aussies are the indigenous population, Aboriginals.
"That WOG, who's being paid $5 an hour to wash dishes for 12 hours straight and be treated like shit, is stealing Aussie jobs!"
