Weekend Rates Under Threat

Weekends matter. They’re a night out with friends, catching a match and spending time with your family.

But for the people who serve us in restaurants and shops, care for our elderly and sick or help us in an emergency, weekends are another work day.

Any change to weekend rates would hit hundreds of thousands of weekend workers with a sudden pay cut they can’t afford and don’t deserve.

Weekend rates are currently under threat and the Turnbull Government has refused to support weekend workers. Instead, a report commissioned by the Federal Government has recommended slashing the pay of people who work weekends.

This election, let Mr Turnbull know where you stand and vote to Save our Weekend and protect penalty rates.

The Australian, 20, April 2016





With several big business groups running a legal case to cut weekend pay rates and the Turnbull Government considering plans to do the same it’s now or never to Save our Weekend and protect weekend pay rates. But we can’t do it without you.
