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

In La Trobe these cuts hit 2991 people.

To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Jason Wood received a pay rise of $4,507.

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

Jason Wood could have voted to stop these penalty rates cuts. He voted 7 times to back big business instead.
