Support Apprentices, and support the future of our industries.

The apprenticeship system is in strife, our industry is having difficulty retaining and attracting apprentices. Poor wages and unfair working conditions are a problem. I demand that the Australian Industry Group puts industry before profits  and support the Austrailain Manufacturing Workers Unions (AMWU) case In Fair Work Commission (FWC) for:

* A decent and livable apprentice wage

* Equality in terms of entitlements - the right to payment of all training related                   travel expenses when traveling for training purposes.

* Lowering the age to 20 ‘ at commencement as the definition for an adult apprentice
