No doubt you would have heard that weekend penalty rates are under attack. Right now retail and hospitality workers are the target but we all know if the Federal Government is successful at slashing the pay packets of people in those industries everyone else will be next. It’s for this reason that United Voice has been campaigning hard to ensure Australian workers aren’t hit with a pay cut they can’t afford and don’t deserve.
You can help protect weekend rates too by simply signing the pledge to vote to save them on Election Day next month. Jump online and add your support - http://www.saveourweekend.org.au/
