North Coast and Northern Rivers workers in the fast food, retail and pharmacy sectors rely on Sunday and public holiday penalty rates to keep their heads above water. Slashing their pay will not only hurt local families, it will put increasing pressure on our stretched community services. We call on the Member for Page, Kevin Hogan MP, to stand up for our community and ensure that penalty rates are protected by law.
Why is this important?
There are hundreds, if not thousands of local families that will suffer because of the decision to slash Sunday and public holiday penalty rates. People across the North Coast and Northern Rivers are demanding action. In fact, A survey by ReachTel found that 66.4% of voters in the seats of Page, Dawson and Corangamite think their local MP should support changes to the law to protect penalty rates.
