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
