Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Chris Crewther are cutting wages again.

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

In Dunkley these cuts hit 3000 people.

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

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


"[Penalty rates] can often be stressful for the business owner”,

Chris Crewther, 6 June, 2016


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