Fair Work Commission cuts Weekend Rates

"Low Paid Workers Are About To Have Their Pay Packets Slashed"

BuzzFeed News, 23.02.17

  

This decision 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 today’s decision will extend beyond the hospitality and retail industries. 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. 

HOW CAN YOU
SAVE OUR WEEKEND?

So far – Malcolm Turnbull and his big business mates have been successful in convincing the Fair Work Commission to slash weekend rates.

But the fight is not over.

Weekend workers and supporters can still fight to Save our Weekend, but we can’t do it alone.

The PM should stop these cuts
