To: The State Government and Employers

Did you know...wage theft only became a crime in 2020?

The Young Workers Hub is calling on the State Government and employers to raise awareness that wage theft is a crime. This will empower young workers to recover their wages and take action.

Why is this important?

Despite wage theft being criminalised in September 2020 in Queensland, young people continue to be underpaid and exploited at work. Many young people are unaware of the change to the legislation and also what this means for them when it comes to getting their money back! That's why we think the government and employers need to do more to help young people understand the changes to wage theft legislation and how they can address it.
