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.
