The Today Show on the Penalty Rates Battle
This morning on the Today Show Lisa Wilkinson interviewed United Voice Assistant National Secretary David McElrea on the release of the Productivity Commissions report that recommended cuts to weekend rates.
Watch the interview here:
What does it mean for the hundreds of thousands of workers whose weekly wages are under threat?
This was the question that began the interview. Any one of the thousands of our supporters could answer this question. The real question is, where does the Prime Minister stand on this? It's not good enough to hide behind a report they commissioned. The Prime Minister needs to make clear that his government rejects this unsubstantiated recommendation to cut weekend rates.
That's why we're running a petition to him here - if you haven't already, sign it now!
