Don’t let the Liberal Party cut Sunday penalty rates.
After intensive lobbying from the Liberal Party and big business, Fair Work Australia has ruled in favour of cutting Sunday penalty rates.
It’s a massive blow to hundreds of thousands of Victorian families, young retail and hospitality workers already struggling to pay the bills.
For Victorian hospitality, restaurant, fast food, retail and pharmacy workers, the Fair Work decision means they will have their Sunday penalty rates cut between 25% and 50%. Public holiday pay will also be slashed by up to 25%.
These cuts to the pay packets of millions of Victorian workers could be stopped, but the Turnbull Liberal Government is refusing to act.
And the Victorian Opposition leader Matthew Guy wants to go even further, removing the Easter Sunday and AFL eve public holidays all together.
“Opposition Liberal leader Matthew Guy, said retracting the Easter Sunday and AFL eve public holidays was at the top of his priority list.” - The Weekly Times, August 24, 2015
Demand Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals reverse this decision now!
