Nicolle Flint voted 8 times to cut penalty rates

Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Nicolle Flint are cutting wages again.

On 1 July 2018, there were more cuts to penalty rates – twice as big as last year.

In Boothby these cuts hit 2896 people.

To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Nicolle Flint received a pay rise of $4,060.

Under the Liberals, it’s pay rises for them ­and pay cuts for the rest of us. Do you think that’s fair?


"What I’d l like the unions to explain is how they possibly think that increasing penalty rates to a loading of 250 per cent on public holidays is a good thing? Outrageous wage increases, like a loading of 250 per cent on public holidays, do more harm than good." Nicole Flint MP, Adelaide Now, 8 August, 2015.


Nicolle Flint could have voted to stop these penalty rates cuts. She voted 8 times to back big business instead.
