Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Ken O'Dowd are cutting wages again.
On 1 July 2018, there were more cuts to penalty rates – twice as big as last year.
Ken O'Dowd voted 8 times to cut penalty rates despite local workers urging him not to.
In Flynn these cuts hit 5831 people.
To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Ken O'Dowd received a pay rise of $4,060.
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?
"Retailers and hospitality employers are also trying to overcome the difficulties that are presented to them with these ever so high penalty rates forced on them on the weekends." Ken O'Dowd MP, Speech to Parliament, 6 June, 2013
Ken O'Dowd could have voted to stop these penalty rates cuts. He voted 8 times to back big business instead.
