Hospitality, retail, fast food and pharmacy workers on the Central Coast could be worse off – claims Labor.
As the Federal Government’s cuts to penalty rates come into effect today.
“Taking pay out of people’s pay doesn’t help small businesses. It doesn’t help those families put food on the table, send kids to school and keep a roof over their heads.”
“Three months ago retail workers were at the heart of the COVID-19 response. Today they’re just a disposable worker as they face wage cuts.”
The Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks says decisions on penalty rates are independently made by the Fair Work Commission.
