The decision by the Fair Work Commission to cut Sunday penalty rates is an outrage.
The Commission has abrogated its responsibility to uphold the safety net. Many low paid workers will now fall below the Commission’s own poverty benchmark.
This is a pay cut people can’t afford and DO NOT deserve.
The impact of this decision will extend beyond the hospitality and retail industries. Around 4.6 million Australian workers are entitled to receive weekend, evening or holiday rates. Will the government abandon all of these working families?
It is also a decision we cannot sit back and accept.
The Save our Weekend campaign will continue to fight to protect the living standards of all weekend workers.
Join the campaign now to be part of that fight – and sign the petition at right to send a message to the Prime Minister that he must stop these cuts!
