Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Kevin Hogan are cutting wages again.
On 1 July 2018, there were more cuts to penalty rates – twice as big as last year.
Kevin Hogan voted 8 times to cut penalty rates despite local workers urging him not to.
In Page these cuts hit 6197 people.
To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Kevin Hogan received a pay rise of $4,588.
We've all got cost of living pressures but under the Liberals & Nationals, it’s pay rises for them and pay cuts for the rest of us. Do you think that’s fair?
"[But] if a person is a university student, if they're in the last two years of high school and they literally want to work on a Sunday because that's the only time they can, is there a formula that's better for them? That they get the job because the restaurant or cafe will open if they can pay them less, and they're happy to do it because then they get the job and the cafe is open." Kevin Hogan MP, ABC, 8 October, 2015
Kevin Hogan could have voted to stop these penalty rates cuts. He voted 8 times to back big business instead.
