Return $300 Million in Retail and Fast Food Worker Penalty Rates Now
This petition had 299 supporters
Over the past 18 months we have exposed a massive wages scandal involving almost all major retail and fast food companies cutting the penalty, overtime, shift and other minimum rates.
The Greens proposed Fair Work Amendment (Pay Protection) Bill will guarantee any worker who is covered by a dodgy enterprise agreement will at least be paid the minimum they would otherwise earn under the minimum conditions Award. This basic change to the law will immediately protect the pay of over 500 000 workers in the retail and fast food sectors. Those workers currently lose well over $300 million per year because of dodgy deals which cut penalty, overtime, shift and other rates of pay.
We call on you to immediately support the proposed Fair Work Amendment (Pay Protection) Bill. It will return hundreds of millions of dollars in wages taken from retail and fast food workers by guaranteeing the minimum full rate of pay is paid to all workers, irrespective of any enterprise agreement.
