Craig Laundy voted 8 times to cut penalty rates

Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Craig Laundy are cutting wages again.

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

Craig Laundy voted 8 times to cut penalty rates despite local workers urging him not to.

In Reid these cuts hit 4180 people.

To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates are cut again, Craig Laundy received a pay rise of $6,395.

Under the Liberals, it’s pay rises for them ­and pay cuts for the rest of us. Do you think that’s fair?


NAOMI WOODELY: You are obviously coming from a background in hospitality. Is it a case, and would you like to see a system where penalty rates are modified or changed in a sector like hospitality, but left in place for people like nurses or firemen?

CRAIG LAUNDY: Yeah, look I think that's a very good question call. I think you should approach it industry by industry, and I'm not averse to that at all
