The best way to counter the arguments about weekends no longer meaning something is to tell our stories about why we know that isn’t the case.
Do you work weekends? What does working weekends means for you and why do your weekend penalty rates matter?
Don’t work weekends? Why are weekends important to you and why do you support weekend penalty rates?
“With three children, working weekends is my only option for our household to survive. To be working in an industry that operates 24/7 – with weekends being the busiest time - I have sacrificed on children’s birthdays, family functions and sports just to make ends meet. Weekend rates have helped tremendously. Take weekend rates away and it means more time away from my children and day care that we simply cannot afford.”
