This Easter weekend many of you will be missing out on precious time with family and friends to ensure the rest of us can enjoy the holidays as safely as possible.
As Australians, we’ve always believed that people who have to work when most do not should be compensated for this sacrifice.
Tony Abbott wants to change all this and scrap weekend rates. We can’t let this happen. Make sure you tell us why you think weekend and penalty rates are important by clicking here.
We know if Tony Abbott is successful in attacking weekend rates, shift allowances and public holiday rates will be next on his agenda.
If you’re working this Easter weekend, thanks – we appreciate it. If not, spare a thought for those who have to work and be part of the fight to save weekend rates. I wish all you all a Happy Easter and stay safe.
