Michelle Landry voted 8 times to cut penalty rates

Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Michelle Landry are cutting wages again.

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

In Capricornia these cuts hit 3434 people.

To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Michelle Landry received a pay rise of $4,710.

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


As a former book-keeper for small business, I understand the concerns they face and I’d encourage anyone with a view on penalty rates in Capricornia to make a submission to the Fair Work Commission.”

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