Protect Our Penalty Rates

It's simply not fair to cut the wages of some of Australia's lowest paid workers

People who rely on penalty rates rely on this money to pay the bills and to raise their children.

There are only 2 weeks until penalty rates are cut again. This time the cuts to Sunday penalty rates will be even deeper. Workers in retail, hospitality, fast food and pharmacy could lose up to $50.95 every Sunday. If this isn’t bad enough, more cuts are coming on 1 July 2019 and 1 July 2020. 

A devastating decision has been made that will see a cut to the penalty rates for hospitality, retail and fast food workers. 

On the week commencing 25th June, Labor will introduce a bill to protect penalty rates.

We need to stand together and protect those in our community who will be badly impacted by this penalty rate cut.

We need your help to put pressure on the Government to protect penalty rates.
