Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Peter Dutton are cutting wages again.

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

In Dickson these cuts hit 3014 people.

To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Peter Dutton received a pay rise of $7,004.

We've all got cost of living pressures but under the LNP, it’s pay rises for them ­and pay cuts for the rest of us. Do you think that’s fair?

Peter Dutton could have voted to stop these penalty rates cuts. He voted 8 times to back big business instead.
