Weekends matter.

June 30, 2017

This weekend, I'll be spending time with my kids and family, but many Australians will be at work. They will be missing out on spending time with their family, children and seeing their friends.

It's only two days until Penalty Rates are cut. Here in Hotham, 11,365 workers (that's a huge 1 in 6) will be getting a pay cut. This is at a time of record low wage growth and is fundamentally unfair. This pay cut will affect people from across our local communities.

Malcolm Turnbull's government is handing out tax cuts to big business and millionaires while cutting the pay of ordinary Australians.

If elected, Labor will reverse these cuts to Sunday penalty rates and will change the law to protect the take-home pay of working Australians.

What will the penalty rates cuts mean to you?
