Christian Porter voted 8 times to cut penalty rates

Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Christian Porter are cutting wages again.

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

In Pearce these cuts hit 3041 people.

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

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?


"But I don’t believe as an economy that we can be perfectly serious about job creation and this is what the Productivity Commission says is that having 200% plus wages on a Sunday compared to other times during the week is absolutely killing employment on a Sunday." Christian Porter MP, Sky News, 6 August, 2015


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