Australia needs a pay rise. But Malcolm Turnbull is cutting wages again.

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

To add insult, on the very same day that these locals have their penalty rates cut again, Malcolm Turnbull received a pay rise of $10,000.

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?
