SDA Submission to Senate Inquiry into Penalty Rates

August 11, 2017 Protect Penalty Rates

The Australian Senate is having an Inquiry into Penalty Rates in the Retail, Hospitality and Fast Food Sectors.

Naturally, the SDA made a comprehensive Submission. The SDA Submission argues that some business groups and others are disingenuous when they highlight rates on specific days but completely disregard the higher wage rates paid at other times across the roster cycle. As such, the Senate needs to be mindful of employees ‘take-home’ pay, as opposed to single hourly rate of pay.
