Australia needs a pay rise. But Scott Morrison & Steve Irons are cutting wages again.
On 1 July 2018, there were more cuts to penalty rates – twice as big as last year.
Steve Irons voted 7 times to cut penalty rates despite local workers urging him not to.
In Swan these cuts hit 4127 people.
To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Steve Irons received a pay rise of $4,954.
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?
Steve Irons could have voted to stop these penalty rates cuts. He voted 7 times to back big business instead.
