IT’S SIMPLY NOT FAIR TO CUT THE WAGES OF SOME OF AUSTRALIA’S LOWEST PAID WORKERS

Morrison’s Penalty Rate Cuts Leave Australian Workers Thousands of Dollars Worse Off

If Scott Morrison and the Liberals get their way, cuts to penalty rates will leave workers up to $26,000 worse off.

Cuts since 2017 have left low paid Australian workers under the retail, hospitality, fast food, restaurant and pharmacy awards thousands of dollars worse off.

A pharmacy worker will lose up to $7,000 this year (2019-20) and up to $26,000 over the next three years.

When everything is going up except people’s wages, the last thing that workers need is another cut to their take-home pay.

Scott Morrison has voted in support of the penalty rate cuts eight times.

Just imagine how much further these cuts could spread if the Liberals get their way.

Penalty rates are not a luxury – they help people put food on the table and petrol in the car.

They can be the difference in paying healthcare costs or childcare costs – all of which keep soaring under this government.
